I received a reply offline to my running header muddle that I thought
would be useful to the group. Thanks Alexander. I'll take a look and see
if I can sort it out with the advice you sent me.
The effect you observing appears because markers are placed in the
cells of the table that wrapped in fo:block-container with
writing-mode="rl-tb". Within this writing mode table column placed
from right to left and thus order of markers changes. In general it is
not recommended to place markers in adjacent table cells since
sometimes overall result will be unpredictable.
I must admit that your XSL FO document has quite intricate structure -
separate words wrapped in up to four nested tables. I believe this
level of complexity is just an overkill and prone to unexpected
results as well as slow document formatting. Almost every possible
layout can be created with lesser efforts. Note that tables in XSL FO
are the most resource-consumptive objects from formatter point of view
and generally it is advisable to avoid their use as much as possible.
