Subject: block-container with absolute-position="fixed" not working


I have been creating a customization layer for DocBook XSL with very nice results. Switched some fonts, tweaked things here and there, the goal is to have the "almost-professionally-published" look end the result right from the start.

I use DocBook DG + Sagehill's book as a guide. (Sagehill turned out to be very concise in its explanation regarding tweaking the XSL-FO... perhaps I should get the XSL-FO book from O'Reilly)

The problem I currently have right now is how to put the 'chapter title' in a fixed position on the top-left corner of the page. First I tried using <fo:block absolute-position="fixed"> with lots of options and didn't work. After some searching on the net it turned out that 'fixed' only supported by 'block-container'. Switching to this one though, still doesn't work.

Even something like this:


When inserted into the titlepage's body flow, generated nothing (not even the text). Removing the block-container "works", in that it displays the "TEST" word but there is no way I get the block to freely position it somewhere.

I use Saxon 6 with FOP 0.93. Does this have anything to do with FOP?

Please help. Thank you very much, I really appreciate any help.
