I ran your fo with and without the "+ 0.001pt" and indeed it
fails and works as you said it would.
Good news, however. Following up on your to arrange it such
that the "computed i-p-d for the content equals the one of
the next page", I am now creating region-body definitions for
the gallery page conditional on the preceding page layout
(three-side or not). This seems to be working very well so
Would you still like me to submit the bug report. I don't
feel the thread title here would be appropriate. Perhaps
"Insufficient space for line break causes error on
zero-length region-body" would be closer to the truth.
Thanks a ton for the work-around! Saved the day, to be sure.

I've set both font-size and line-height to 1in (on

less than 2in (page-height="11in" - body/@margin-top="9in

check again that you tried that example?
I should mention that in our production situation the

interesting story which
I will refrain from telling at this time, except to
confess the actual
page-layout dimensions for the gallery pages:
master-name="gallery6-page-3" margin="0.0in 0.0in
<fo:region-body margin-top="10.0in" margin-right="0.70in"
<fo:region-before precedence="true" extent="9.0in"
for the body of gallery6-page-3:
b-p-d is 11in - 0 - 0.6in - 10in - 0.4in = 0,
so, in case of multi-line content, there is no room for
line-break, that cause a FOP exception if i-p-d changes
on next page (this is a FOP bug).
for each column:
i-p-d = (8.5in - 0 - 0.833in - -0.7in - 0.4in) / 2 =
If you leave a 0 b-p-d to force an empty page, you should
ensure that computed i-p-d for the content (here each
column) equals the one of the next page, the issue you
are facing should not occur.
master-name="three-side-page-11" margin="0.0in 0.0in
Please advise as to how to procede. Happy to register
the failure you've
isolated (though I don't understand why the "fail"
case doesn't generate
one-line of text on the first page?).Should I enter
another on the
negative interplay of the two page layouts?

As a workaround, you should decrease the
margin-top of your
simple-page-master "gallery6-page-3" (leaving
room for 2 * line-height,
and/or add a break-before on the %block% that
come in 1st place of

We're using FOP-1.0.
Admittedly it may be a stretch to call these
"simple" page layouts but
the attached FOs show that the ordering of
the page layouts can cause

Some explaintion of the intent: The
"three-side-page-*" s-m-ps usurp a
two-column text xsl-region body placing a
static region over one of the
columns and the gallery6-page-* attempt to
set the size of the
region-body to zero (creating a 'text-less'
Note that the gallery6-page-* layout was
recently reworked to be
textless. Prior to that (developed originally
in FOP-0.95) we had an
inch of text available and detected no order
dependency amongst the
orderings of layouts.
And yes the s-m-ps are generated on the fly
by the xsl translation,
whereby a static page definitions is loaded
into a page-number specific
master, also left/right adjusted.
Furthermore, in other we also experience a
single line of text on the
gallery6-page-*s only when preceded by a
three-side-page-* s-m-p. If
necessary I will report that as a separate
issue, but at this point I'm
hoping both symptoms are tightly related.
Any work-around much appreciated. If
requested, I'm more than willing to
report this as a bug. Unfortunately we cannot
wait for FOP-1.1 but we
could run off the trunk.
As I see it the diffs in the two attached
FO's are entirely in the
static-regions as one would expect.
We're at crunch time and could go back to the
original definition of
gallery6-page* but would /really/ rather not.
