Hello JingJun,

I also did not understand your question, but here are some suggestions:
try to express your requirements more precisely, with an example;
make sure you know the XSL FO spec in part of static-content,
region-before|after|start|end, page-sequence-master,
repeatable-page-master-alternatives, conditional-page-master-reference.

If the FO model is not sufficient, which, I hope, is not the case, you
may try to intervene at the stage of XEP Intermediate Format (XEPOUT,
see reference.pdf). Post-processing XEPOUT will allow you to put any
hook on <xep:page> arrival, if treating it as SAX. Good examples and
explanations of how to deal with it are in XEP Integration and
Connectivity Kit.

Best regards,
Michael Sulyaev
