 Hi Kevin!


 I'm the one who posted "original" Double Page Numbering question here.


 I'm pretty sure, that until there's no some extension provided by FO
processor, there's no way how to solve it by single pass of XSL-FO.


 So maybe we should ask RenderX to implement it for us? ;) For example
something like adding optional attribute start-from-ref-id to fo:page-number
and fo:page-number-citation would do the trick and it shouldn't be big
problem to implement (?).


 Btw. I'm trying to find the thread in
archive ( mentioned by
Ron, but so far I was not successful (I have gone through the last six

Subject: [xep-support] Double Page Numbering Revisited


Hello All,


I have an XSLT / XSL-FO application that I use to generate slides for my
courseware. When I generate the slides for a course, I use
<fo:page-number/> to number the slides consecutively. Additonally, some of
my slides make up a series that I would also like to label as [1 of 4], [2
of 4], [3 of 4], etc. So far, I have not figured out a good way to do this.
It seems to me that this would be a double page numbering scheme like the
one that was discussed on this list about a month ago. I recall that the
best advice in that thread was to do post processing on the FO output file.


Can anyone think of a way to do this with just a single pass of XSLT and


Thanks in advance for you help.
