    Most of my output is in A4 portrait mode, but I would like to be able to
    output some pages in landscape mode and some pages on A3 landscape.

    ii) the page is displayed in portrait mode, so the table appears sideways

    Is there any way of producing landscape pages (or landscape within
    portrait, viewed onscreen as landscape) and A3 landscape pages that
    revert back to A4 portrait at the end of the current element? The
    requirement to issue overflow pages automatically is a 'nice-to-have' that
    could be dropped, at a pinch. (In a way, what I want is a nested pageset -
    but that is not allowed in xsl-fo).
