    I have an input structure like this:

    2 <element1>mixed-content</element1>
    3 <container>
    4 <para1>mixed-content</para1>
    5 zero or more additional paras, lists, etc.
    6 </container>

    I need the following in the output:

            <fo:inline>mixed content from element1</fo:inline>
            mixed content from para1
        any additional blocks, list-blocks etc. from line 5

    Perhaps there is a way of doing this without 'cheating', and I just haven't
    seen it yet. I'm trying to do this with a conventional push-processing
    style-sheet, but perhaps I need to get more creative.... :-)

    Thanks for the info re. processing and serialization.
