That isn't how I see it in the XSL-FO ... the first row *of the page*
is created by the table caption:

   <fo:table-and-caption break-before="page">
         <fo:block font="bold 10pt Helvetica" keep-with-next="always"
space-before="16pt" space-after="6pt" text-align="end">Table 1.2
"Formatting Properties Supported by XEP" part#2</fo:block>
      <fo:table rx:table-omit-initial-header="true">
         <fo:table-header background-color="silver" font-size="110%"
                  <fo:block font="bold 10pt Helvetica"
text-align="end">Table 1.2 "Formatting Properties Supported by XEP"
part#2<fo:inline font-style="italic" font-weight="normal">

The complete example is on the web site at:

>When I try it, all rows of my header are omitted.

As is true for the example on the web site.

>I can't see where my example is different from the example in the

It is an extended behaviour as a custom feature of XEP, but the
example on the web indicates that all rows of the header are indeed suppressed.

I hope this helps.
