This is very nice.  Thank you.

Perhaps the problem is the use of the
proportional-column-width() function in your
customized header.table template?  Is that function
supported in FOP?  You might need to use percentage
or fixed column widths (ugh).

You might try turning on
table borders in your header.table to test where
the cell boundaries are.  The center cell uses
text-align="center", but if the cell itself is
not centered on the page, then the text won't be
centered on the page.
