Hello, Nicholas.

The fo:table-header formatting object is used to contain the content of the table header.
Normally it is repeated right after a page break or column break crosses the table body.

    <fo:block> this is a cell in table-header </fo:block>
   <!-- more cells in this row -->
  <!-- more rows in table-header -->
  . . . . . . .
See a FO sample attached.
