Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Making sure headers in tables are not too closetothe rule beside them

We've had this problem for a long time, and were hopeful to hear there
is a solution.  However, after installing the latest JadeTex (wow, the
bookmarks work now!  Thanks, Sebastian!), and DSSSL 1.64, we still don't
get any margins in table cells. (Running DocBook 4.1).

I have a couple questions about what Dan York said here:

1) As those two lines are found in dbtable.dsl, why do you need to add
them to your DSSSL customization layer?

2) Is there a typo?  Shouldn't ...before-column margin% ...
                            be ...before-column-margin% ... ?

3) Most important, why doesn't my PDF output show margins in table
cells?  What am I missing?
