    XSL FO specifications states that when writing-mode set on
    fo:region-* it defines the column-progression within each region. This
    property would not be inherited by the content of the flow.

    No, it's not. Setting "writing-mode" on the simple-page-master defines
    only the placement of the five regions on the master.

    LW> Many thanks in advance,
