this may sound very easy for fop-cracks, but it's killing beginners like us: How can I generate page-breaks in fo? There seem to be fitting fo-markups (page-break-after, page-break-before etc.), but sadly they are not implemented yet. Ideas?
Use break-before="page" or break-after="page" on a block level element for this purpose. The properties you cited are shorthands for this.
