I'm new at this X{ S | M }L stuff, so bear with me...
I'm creating a PDF document that contains a header, footer, and 1 or more tables of varying length with each table remaining intact for each page (think 'fo:table-row keep-with-next.within-page="always"'). I've been successful keeping everything where it needs to go. My problem is that when there is not enough room on the current page for the next table, I need to put a message on the current page that reads something like "***continued on page N***" where N is the next page number. Ideally, this line of text would be positioned 1 table row beneath the last table row of the last table on the current page. The beginning of the next page (beneath the header) must read "***continued from page N***" where N is the previous page number. I've google'd and read documents until I see them in my sleep, and have failed at finding a solution. Surely xsl has some attribute/variable/parameter combination that says "too much data for this page, put it on the next" that I can test in order to implement the appropriate message.

I'm thinking there must be a way to set a variable manipulate it such that I can get what I want:

Is there a way to do something like (and I don't know the proper syntax, yet):


Any help or direction to a know-it-all document or web-site is greatly appreciated.
