Hello Luis,thanks for taking the time to test the patch. From a quick look I 
had, it seems  this is a legit issue (the reading order is wrong -- I can not 
reproduce the long pause between lines).

      Thank you. That worked.


      What happens when a document with the first limitation is used? I
      assume the output is not correct, but in what way?


      I performed a simple search for "tagged pdf example". One of the
      first hits is this link:


      The sample there does not work very well with this patch. The
      content is read in a different order. And there are long pauses
      between lines, something that does not happen with the original (I
      only tested with Adobe Reader in Windows 8.1). Is this sample an
      example that this patch does not support? Or is the problem with
      Adobe Reader?

            Given the fact that fop-pdf-images (including this branch)
            uses pdfbox 2.0 snapshots while fop trunk uses 1.8.5 (the
            fontbox jar) I think we need some information on how to test
            this. I thought that using the recent pdfbox 1.8.8 jars
            would work but it doesn't seem to be the case. What version
            of pdfbox jars should we use with fop?


            Also, I would like to suggest that if we run two votes in
            parallel then 5 working days for both votes may not be

            merge Tagged PDF for pdf plugin and small patch for fop.
          Known Limitations :
          - Only PDF with marked-content sequences
            in the page content stream are supported. Marked-content
            sequences in content stream other than the content stream of
            the page are not supported.
          - Repeated headers and footers are not
            completely supported. Example: 2-page pdf including table
            that spans both pages with repeated header. If you merge the
            second page, the table header will be visible in the pdf but
            the reader will ignore it (same principle applies for
            repeated footers).
          In order to use this feature,
            accessibility must be enabled in the configuration file and
            the source pdf must be accessible (tagged).
          The vote will last 5 working days, ending
            next Tuesday.
          Here is my vote: +1
