Page dimensions are defined on every simple-page-master. Therefore you
just need to switch pagemasters appropriately (please find simple
example attached). I can't say what happens in XSL-FO produced by
Arbortext, but from your description I conclude that it just wrap
"landscape" tables in container with reference-orientation="90"
instead of using separate page-master. So the problem is in Arbortext
Composer rather then in XEP.
