Hi Kevin,

it is hard to propose a workaround without understanding what you
want to achieve in the final production output. If you use table-
header but don't need it to be repeated on column breaks, set table-
omit-header-at-break to false. If you can live with relative-
align="before", set it on list-item elements which contain tables
with repeating table headers.

Good news is that the bug is already fixed in the next generation of
XEP which is (somewhat slowly) approaching the release. Not so good
news for you is that it uses different algorithms and code base and
thus backporting the algorithms to the current version is a big
enough job; so the fix will not be available soon.

If your business needs demand urgent support for repeating headers in
tables which follow blocks in list cells with relative-
align="baseline", you can contact RenderX sales (
and discuss conditions for the custom job.
