Orphan/widow and header/footer format issues with FOP

Hello all,

We have recently released an application that uses:
Xerces 2.5.1
Xalan 2.5.0
FOP 0.20.5

Our Application Server environment is:
WebSphere 4.0.x running on RedHat Linux v7.x

Our users have uncovered some issues with the widow-orphan and header/footer issues. Due to the open source implementation´┐Żs lack of compliance I realize that we may have to use a different FOP engine.

I have been doing some research and found a list of alternate FOP implementations that may or may not solve these formatting issues´┐Ż

XEP from RenderX
Pure from Advent3B2
PassiveTeX
XSL Formatter AntennaHouse

While I am looking into the keep-with-[next/previous] properties as well as a few work around examples for the open source implementation of xalan/fop I was curious if any of you have used these, or any other, processors to resolve similar issues.

Thanks in advance.
