Hi Paul, 1. Try putting your margin-top in your <fo:simple-page-master> 2. afaik markers aren't supported yet. 3. try using something like: <fo:block line-height="3pt"> <fo:leader leader-pattern="rule" leader-length="150mm" rule-thickness="1pt" color="#990000"/> </fo:block> 4. I had to fiddle a lot with preventing page-breaks, you will have to use the workarounds (using table-cells/ keep-together="always") or wait for the major redesign, I reckon. Please correct, if I'm wrong.
