ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
After adding start body/end body tags, Conditional region code doesn't seem to be functioning. Customer had a PO print template where the XML file has many blank PO pages. These are pages that were suppressed in the original PDF, but they still leave a track in the XMl file. Customer was able to fix this by putting a condition region over the area and only showing if the document number was > zero. This worked fine. Then customer added the start body and end body tags to create a header and footer for the report. It all works great, except that the blank pages are showing now. It seems to be ignoring the conditional region.
