In standard FO, you should be able to just give the region-body a
different region-name and have static-content write to the region-body.
FOP might not like that, unfortunately, if I remember correctly.

Subject: page master with no flow text in region-body


Is it possible to create a page-master where the region-body will not
allow any of the flow text to come in? I want to create a document that
will be duplex printed where the front of the page (odd pages) will be
dynamic and the back of the page (even pages) will be a static body of
text, the same on every even page.


My thought was to use conditional-page-masters for odd and even pages
where the margins of the even page would not allow any text to be
written in the region-body and use the region-before to include my
static text. For instance, I supposed that if the region-body area were
only 1mm, no dynamic text would fit and only the static content would be


This apparently doesn't work. The region-body seems to always contain at
least one line of text.


I know I could probably use the IF to do this, but does anyone know of a
way to do this in straight XSL-FO?
