    You can assign different static content to odd and even pages, using
    named fo:static-content elements and fo:repeatable-page-master-alternatives
    to build a page sequence master. I suggest looking at the XSL FO
    tutorial, available inside XEP's distribution (doc/tutorial.pdf).
    Note that the tutorial itself has page numbers on the left on even
    pages, and on the right on odd pages :-). You can therefore look
    at its sources (also included in each XEP distribution) to see
    a concrete example:

       - doc/docbook/tutorial.dbx is XML (DocBook) source;
       - doc/docbook/stylesheets/dbx2pdf.xsl is the XSL FO stylesheet.

    Best regards,
