        <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">

                          <fo:block>Some text on the first line</fo:block>

                          <!-- draw empty line here -->
                          <fo:block><fo:leader leader-pattern="space" /></fo:block>

                          <!-- draw horizontal line -->
                          <fo:block><fo:leader leader-length="100%" leader-pattern="rule" rule-style="dashed" rule-thickness="2px" /></fo:block>

                          <fo:block>Some text on the 3rd line</fo:block>
