Re: [xep-support] long table turned 90 deg

He means to create new fo:simple-page-master elements with reference-orientation="90"
on the fo:region-body in it. Then you create a new fo:page-sequence-master from the
simple-page-masters, and apply this landscape page master by putting its name in the
master-reference property of the fo:page-sequence for the table.

The problem with doing this is that you cannot put a fo:page-sequence inside an
fo:page-sequence. Typically a table occurs inside a chapter or section that has a
fo:page-sequence. You have to terminate that page-sequence before the table, run the
landscape table page-sequence, and then start a new regular page-sequence for the
content after the table. That's a job for PSMI.

PSMI (http://www.cranesoftwrights.com/resources/psmi/index.htm) is Page Sequence
Master Interleave written by Ken Holman to automate that process of breaking up a
page sequence to accomodate landscape items. I use it regularly for this purpose.
