    For running headers I've been using markers similar to the example below:

     <xsl:template match="chapter/title">
        <fo:block xsl:use-attribute-sets="head1"
          <fo:marker marker-class-name="sect-head" >
            <fo:block><xsl:value-of select="."/>

    (from: http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect3/bk/ch12.html#d0e5483, Example
    11.8. Marker usage)

    This worked fine in 2.78 versions of XEP. However, with the newer 3.xx
    versions, I get errors reporting that the fo:marker has to be an initial
    child of fo:flow. If this is true, it will be rather cumbersome to revise
    the applicable stylesheets, so I would like to know why this is implemented
    this way and if it is correct according to the standard.
    When I look at the Spec, (6.11.3 fo:marker)it says that the "fo:marker has
    to be an initial child of its parent formatting object." Unfortunately the
    spec does not include a DTD to see where fo:marker is allowed.
    RenderX, however, offers a DTD on their website which I looked at
    According to this DTD <fo:marker> is included in the entity %wrappers;,
    which is one of the options within the entity "%blocks;" that come directly
    within fo:flow. The content of "%blocks;" is repeatable and thus I should be
    able to use a block first within fo:flow and then an fo:marker element or am
    I wrong?

    Please advice - thanx
