simple-page-master - Simple Page Layout

This section describes the simple page layout, simple-page-master, which divides a page into 5 regions: region-body, region-before, region-after, region-start, and region-end.

What Is "simple-page-master"? "simple-page-master" is an XSL-FO page layout declaration element. It declares a simple page layout with 5 regions:

"region-body" - The "body" region is a rectangular region in the center of the page. This region is usually used to present main content.

"region-before" - The "before" region is a rectangular region on the "before" side of the "body" region.

"region-after" - The "after" region is a rectangular region on the "after" side of the "body" region.

"region-start" - The "start" region is a rectangular region on the "start" side of the "body" region.

"region-end" - The "end" region is a rectangular region between "region-before" and "region-after" next to the right edge of the page.

The diagram below shows those 5 regions of "simple-page-master" layout with default settings:

Aa you can see from the diagram, the "simple-page-master" layout puts the "body" region in the center of the page as the main content region, and other 4 regions as side regions around the "body" region.
