    Not in XSL-FO 1.0.

    Make sure the XSL editors at know of your
    requirements for their assessment of future revisions of the Recommendation.

    Regarding landscape tables in a portrait page geometry where the desire for
    the table to be in landscape instead of portrait is expressed by the author
    of the XML, this is also not supported in XSL-FO 1.0 but is supported using
    XSL-FO 1.0 in a two-step methodology called the Page Sequence Master
    Interleave (PSMI) in our free Resource Library linked from our home page
    noted below.

    I hope this helps.
