When using <fo:repeatable-page-master-alternatives> statement, how to specify page-position=8 (or any other number)?

                 <fo:conditional-page-master-reference master-reference="your-page-1" page-position="first"/>
                 <fo:conditional-page-master-reference master-reference="your-page-2"/> page-position="8"/>
             </fo:repeatable-page-master-alternatives>
 

in other words, we would kile to have all pages portrait, but page 8-10 to be landscape.

check here
http://www.datypic.com/sc/fo11/a-page-position-1.html
for the only allowed values for page-position in a conditional page master
fixed numbers are not part of that
maybe some processor extensions do that.

Do you need a flow all over the pages or can you break the flows and adddifferent layout options alltogether

It feels to me that you know what data needs to get into the landscape view
maybe you need to tell us more about the requirement

it does matter

- you can't say 8 - 10 here
<fo:conditional-page-master-reference master-reference="your-page-2"/> page-position="8"/>
as I told you

so your options are
- break your flows in different page sequences based on your content
- look for a processor that has an extension that allows this (I don't know any that does)
- do a whole lot of hocus pocus making all portrait but pull out the content for the landscape, stuff that in a different PDF and merge programmatically using iText or something

If you told me what exactly the requirements are, and how the content looks like, I could help you pick the right route
If "doesnt matter" is all I can get from you then "it is impossible apart from the options I told you" is the best I can do

mmh, for one reason or another I never saw your latest message.

Anyway, out of context this does not make much sense, but here is an example

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
<fo:root font-family="Arial" xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
	<fo:layout-master-set>
		<fo:simple-page-master master-name="portrait" page-height="29.7cm" page-width="21cm" margin="1cm">
			<fo:region-body/>
		</fo:simple-page-master>
		<fo:simple-page-master master-name="landscape" page-height="21cm" page-width="29.7cm" margin="1cm">
			<fo:region-body/>
		</fo:simple-page-master>
	</fo:layout-master-set>
	<fo:page-sequence master-reference="portrait">
		<fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
			<fo:block page-break-after="always">Page1</fo:block>
			<fo:block page-break-after="always">Page2</fo:block>
			<fo:block>Page3</fo:block>
		</fo:flow>
	</fo:page-sequence>
	<fo:page-sequence master-reference="landscape">
		<fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
			<fo:block page-break-after="always">Page4</fo:block>
			<fo:block page-break-after="always">Page5</fo:block>
			<fo:block page-break-after="always">Page6</fo:block>
			<fo:block>Page7</fo:block>
		</fo:flow>
	</fo:page-sequence>
	<fo:page-sequence master-reference="portrait">
		<fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
			<fo:block>Page8</fo:block>
		</fo:flow>
	</fo:page-sequence>
</fo:root>
