Is there no way of adding 'continued' to a block if it breaks over pages
(excluding table headers and footers altogether)?

So in my case, I'm using axf:repeat-cell-content-at-break="true" on a
table-cell whose content that I want repeated when the content of a table-row
breaks over pages. I'd like to add 'continued' to that cell when it breaks
onto the following page. Currently I'm trying to use regular markers and
basically do not understand the language used to define the properties of
@retrieve-position. I use markers quite a bit but not to do this and this
should be simple to do.

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.
