When a blank page is generated because the page-sequence specified
force-page-count, does this page also match the page-position=last
It seems in some old versions of FOP (1.0?) this was not the case,
page-position=last didn't match the padding pages.
We were actually counting on that behavior using
conditional-page-master-reference, but it seems the current version
doesn't work that way anymore.
Actually we were getting some unreliable output, when the last page
(before the blank page) is full, it didn't match page-position=last, but
when there was some space left it was matching. I was going to report
that as a bug, but then I tested versions 1.1 and 2.0 and they work
It seems that in the current version of FOP a generated blank page also
We were trying to generate a "End of Section" message on the footer of
the last page with content using a special master matching
But this doesn't work if the last page is a generated blank page, which
matches a different master in our case.
So, what's the correct behavior: is a generated blank page at end of
page sequence also the last page?
If that's the case, then there's no condition that matches the last page
with content, is this right?
