FO: Show page number only if target is on different page

2002-10-03 10:29:25
In the very old days, when I used IBM BookMaster to produce printed
documents from generic markup, BookMaster provided the feature of
automatically suppressing the "on page xx" text generated by cross
references if the thing referenced was on the same page as the

I would like to do the same thing with XSL FO but I don't think it's
possible in XSL 1.0. That is, I'd like to be able to do something like

<xsl:template match="crossref">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="id(@refid)" mode="xref"/>
    <fo:if-not-on-current-page ref-id="{generate-id(id(@refid))}">
      <xsl:text>, on page </xsl:text>
      <fo:page-number-citation ref-id="{generate-id(id(@refid))}"/>

Is something like this possible today or should I submit this as an
extension requirement? Is this already a logged RFE?
