Thanks Ken for clarifying.

I'm going to try something like the following:

Generate a marker and its name dynamically for each table row
See if I can retrieve the marker (as a generic marker and not a table marker)
from the previous page if a table row splits over two pages.

Need to see what all the possible values for retrieve-position are (and if AH
has any extension values for this) and play with them and see what might

I think what you are missing is that table markers can only be retrieved in
table headers and footers.

   "An fo:retrieve-table-marker is only permitted as the descendant of an
    fo:table-header or fo:table-footer or as a child of fo:table in a
    position where fo:table-header or fo:table-footer is permitted."

Why not the footer?  Do you already have something there?  If not, then a
border-less footer would look like continued cell content.

I hope this helps.
