    Sounds like what you need is a table.

    <fo:static-content flow-name="xsl-region-before">
    <fo:block-container relative-position="relative" writing-mode="lr">
    <fo:table border="0pt" table-layout="fixed" padding="1pt">
       <fo:table-column column-width="2.1cm"/>
       <fo:table-column column-width="7.1cm"/>
       <fo:table-column column-width="4cm"/>
       <fo:table-column column-width="3.1cm"/>
       <fo:table-column column-width="3.5cm"/>
           <fo:table-cell text-align="left" padding="0pt">
           <fo:table-cell text-align="center" padding="0pt">
           <fo:table-cell text-align="right" padding="0pt">
             <fo:block font-weight="bold">Custom Text</fo:block>

    Hope this helps!
