I'm actually having the same problems with the keep-with-next property, it
just doesn't seem to have ANY effect at all (I tried using it on table
rows). There have been some discussions here about this topic, and I think
that some people stated that it works, but I still couldn't figure out how
they did it... One workaround is to use table-headers, depending on your
document structure, you might wanna use this.

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"/>
4. I had to fiddle a lot with preventing page-breaks,
   you will have to use the workarounds (using table-cells/
   or wait for the major redesign, I reckon. Please correct, if I'm wrong.
