    It takes properties from fo:retrieve-marker. The XSL spec says:

    [6.11.3. fo:marker]
    XSL> Property values set on an fo:marker or its ancestors
    XSL> will not be inherited by the children of the fo:marker
    XSL> when they are retrieved by an fo:retrieve-marker.

    [6.11.4. fo:retrieve-marker]
    XSL> The properties and traits specified on the ancestors
    XSL> of the fo:retrieve-marker are taken into account when
    XSL> formatting the children of the retrieved fo:marker
    XSL> as if the children had the same ancestors as the
    XSL> fo:retrieve-marker.
