Hi Erik, You have run into a feature of XSL-FO. The space-before property is purposely ignored at the top of a page unless it is also accompanied by space-before.conditionality="retain" That is because when a block element is bumped to the next page during pagination, its text will start at the top of the body area as you would expect, rather than pushed down by its space-before property. In the case of a chapter title that you know starts at the top of a page and you want the space, you have to override that feature with this property.
Hello Bob,Thanks very much for the explanation and the remedy, which indeed made the processing system do what I intended.
Greetings, Erik Leunissen.
