I currently have a header and footer page in my ODFDoc.py. I tested it.
They are in comment for the moment. Not currently in SVN.
Do you think we should add this? I think it could be useful for big reports.
I have several problems for that :
1 - This functionality should be only for the Open Document Format.=20
Is it a problem ? ( port to other document format )
2 - To have a header or a footer, we should have an option ( or two ).
We could test it ( them ) to generate a header or/and a footer.
3 - When the document is only one page length, I think these footer and
header should be unavailable. It depends on the report.
4 - For the header, I can't generate it, because at the beginning of
the document creation, the title document is unknown.
Is there a global var for this ?
5 - For the footer, I have only the page/nb of page centered.
Any comment ?

As I saw, every reports use it's proper style name.
This style contains always the string title. Do you agree ?
When we have this kind of style, we could add one feature to the style which
means add to the index.=20
Then we could add a global index at the end ( begining )of the document.
=2D end or begining could be a report option too like header or footer.
Any comments ?
I can try to look at this.
