A small, complete document uses much of the previously described functionality and illustrates the power of XSL-FO.
As source content, Im going to use an imaginary book outline. In terms of layout, the major elements are the front matter, which requires attention and is a one-off; the main chapters, which share layout but have one or two special treatment areas; and the rear matter, for which separate treatment is needed for an index.
The pagination needed is shown in Figures Figure 10-1 and Figure 10-2.
Figure10-2.Initial page layout
No page headers are needed for the first three pages, page numbers are needed only for the preface and table of contents, then we use a header (no footer), as shown, for the remainder of the chapters. Now we can specify these and define some of the attribute sets that will be used throughout.
So lets put an outline together. Im presuming a fairly complex stylesheet, so Ill partition it early. The main stylesheet will hold only the content templates and will import separate stylesheets for the page layout (layout master set), the primary element templates. Ill start with a trial for the layout master set.See more

‘Whan the yallowin cornfield’s fair steirin’
Whan the yallowin cornfield’s fair steirin,
And the cuil wuid’s reeslin i the souch,
And the gairden’s cramasie fruit is beeryin
Itsel neth thon hinnie-sweet leafy neuk;
Whan wi the scentit dew hit’s skimmerin,
At gloamin-time or dawin-oor,
Frae unner a buss, the lilikin
Boos its wee heid: a frienly flouer;
Whan the cauldrife burn doun the glen is spielin
Slungin my thochts ti a dootsome dwam,
Slabberin ti me an unco Hielan
Tale, as it breenges frae lands o calm;
Than, my lang wanrest nae mair is deavin
My hert, the runkles on my brou
Are smuithed, and in the here-and-nou
I’m blythe, and I see God in Heiven.

Staging is a common concept in rocketry. Using one powerful motor to launch a large rocket has mass penalties: the rocket tube must be thick enough (and therefore heavy enough) to withstand the thrust of the large motor. By stacking multiple rockets on top of each other in stages, you can pack more power into a thinner (and lighter) tube.
The concept of staging is very simple: a multistage rocket is launched using only the motor in the first stage. When the first motor burns out, the rocket drops the weight of the entire first stage—motor, fins, and tube—leaving a smaller rocket to continue the journey. The smaller rocket fires, taking advantage of the speed and altitude provided by the first stage to fly higher and faster than it could have flown on its own. You can do this more than one time. In model rocketry, two-stage rockets are common, but three-stage rockets are not unusual, and you can use even more stages.
This chapter shows how it’s done. You will build Romulus, a two-stage rocket that can fly to altitudes of 1,460 feet, even though it is a big, impressive rocket.See more

The Apple Trees for Lyubomir Nikolov, again
But the trees, Lyubomir, remember the trees!
Five or six of them, each a distinct variety
Of apple – yellow or red, russet or buff-green –
With a footbridge over the brook
And a path winding among them through high grass.
One I can still see.
In the mind’s eye, as then through the body’s too,
I feel the gravid pull
Of the fruit bunched red among green, red as the autumn sun,
Bending the boughs.
Well, now they are gone.
Churning up rights of way,
Bulldozers plough the earth for the new block.
New rights, of course, will succeed the old, but for what?
There is always something more important than trees.
What is anger, my friend, but a form of memory?
I will not let go.
To do so, I know (so they tell me), is good for the soul.
I cannot think of that. I prefer the pain of knowing the trees lost
To losing the trees.
