Great idea -- I don't have FOP, but this is defined behavior in the
DocBook standards (as opposed to any cleverness on my part -- I just
read it in DocBook:TDG!), so I'll be very surprised if it doesn't
deliver as promised.  I'll yield this task to someone who has it
installed.  Is Mark Johnson out there?  I thought he used FOP, but I'm
not sure.
