next page sequence?

>I am trying to design an article using FOP and could use some help in its
layout. The document in an invoice. The first page has a large header and
footer with various invoice data. In the body or content section of the
first page I want to have a table that contains line item data in each row.
Because the first page has used up so much space in its header and footer
there is only room for about 2-3 rows of line item data. On subsequent pages
I would like to carryover the line item table. How can I get the line item
table flow to start on the first page and then continue on subsequent pages?
Thanks,

Here's a working example (trimmed down of course)
