A page breaking logic for absolute positioned elements was too browser-specific the time we added it to PD4ML. So we implemented two (reasonable from our perspective) modes. There were also strange approaches: i.e. the absolute positioned elements are rendered only on the first page. We did not support that.

So try the alternative mode:

[language=java:1w2yzs33]Map m = new HashMap();
m.put(PD4Constants.PD4ML_ABSOLUTE_ADDRESS_SPACE, “document”);

Or switch the mode on by the JVM param:
