There are no means in XSL-FO to dynamically determine current distance
from the page edge and perform any calculations with it. However there
are 'text-align' property and 'float' property which both can have
value of 'inside' and 'outside'. That is any text can be aligned with
respect to the current page position (parity) and floating object can
be forced to float to the outer or inner side of the page.
You may be interested in 'Marginalia' sample available on our site:
This sample shows how to create marks on the margins (known as
'marginalia') using side floats with float='outside'.
Hope this helps.
