Subject Re: Place image at top of page

Hi,

I don't think you need any code modifing in Java.
It seems, you need a header for the page, if i understand good your needs..

So for display header correctly, you need to:
1. define an ie.: <fo:region-before extent="1in"/> in simple-page-master
definiton
you can define an exact name for it ie.: <fo:region-before
2. define an <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-before"> in page-sequence
definition
you can use the named definition by: <fo:flow flow-name="myHeader">

That's it.

Bye, Szeak

The float also disappears from the output PDF.
