    You can't do it in XSL 1.0 within *table* headers or footers (but you
    will be able to in XSL 1.1 as currently formulated).

    But you *can* do it in page headers and footers.

    For each row of the table, create a marker that includes the total up to
    and including that row. Make sure that the row has
    "keep-together-within-page" so that the cell contents don't span a page

    Then in your region-before static content, retrieve the last marker on
    the page.

    Depending on the nature of your data, the depth of table rows, etc., you
    may need to fiddle things to make sure the markers are positioned within
    the right FO to appear on the correct page.
