sorry for my poor explanation of my problem.

you are right with your assumption that i set explicitly the header and
that it won't break into a second row but in a second line in the same
cell. i wasn't that clear to me 'till now.

but the problem remains: i got different table header height because it
sometimes needs one and sometimes two lines for the header.

is there a possibility to say that i want the header (table cell from
header) as high as two lines (relativ or absolut value) so that there
all will look alike?

I don't understand. Table rows have to be put into the table
explicitely, therefore a long header (whatever you mean with
this) will never "break into a second header row". I guess
you got a header table cell with two lines, which is something
different. Row spanning is implemented, but you can't span more than one
table row if there is only one. Can you reformulate your question and
perhaps show a small snippet of your FO code demonstrating your current
