The orphans and widows properties don’t apply to tables, but only to 
paragraphs. To achieve a similar effect for tables, you can use the 
fox:orphan-content-limit extension defined by FOP:
http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/0.94/extensions.html#widow-orphan-content-limit
Don’t forget to add the namespace declaration to the root element.

HTH,
Vincent
