+#Apache™ FOP: Whitespace Management
+## Overview {#overview}
+This page describes an extension for FOP’s page breaking algorithm that enables the
handling of dynamic content. Dynamic content has multiple variants, only one of which will
be inserted in the document. Variant selection is done in a First Come First Served manner
and the first variant that fits within the remaining space in the current page is chosen.
If no appropriate variant is found, the dynamic content will be skipped without affecting
the rest of the document layout.
+## Example {#example}
+Here is an example of dynamic content with two variants:
+    :::xml
+    <fo:multi-switch fox:auto-toggle="best-fit">
+		<fo:multi-case>
+		    <fo:block>First variant</fo:block>
+		</fo:multi-case>
+		<fo:multi-case>
+		    <fo:block>Second variant</fo:block>
+		</fo:multi-case>
+	</fo:multi-switch>
+## Limitations {#limitations}
+* Space attributes (space-before, space-after) are not currently supported. This is primarily
due to how space resolution is done in FOP, which requires the whole FO content to be known
before doing page breaking.
+* Dynamic content inside a table cell does not work.
