There is as yet no parameter in Norm's standard XSL distribution that does

I have done this in the customization layers I have built for both our 
organization and also for the Linux Documentation Project.  You can see my 
e-smith stylesheet at:


and the document describing it at:


The LDP XSLT stylesheets are viewable through the LDP's CVS at:


The relevant file there to look at is 'ldp-html-common.xsl'.

Basically, you want to modify the XSLT template for the elements to
be shaded. The code looks like:

<xsl:template match="programlisting|screen|synopsis">
  <xsl:param name="suppress-numbers" select="'0'"/>
  <xsl:variable name="vendor" select="system-property('xsl:vendor')"/>
  <xsl:variable name="id"><xsl:call-template name="object.id"/></xsl:variable>

  <xsl:if test="@id">
    <a href="{$id}"/>

    <xsl:when test="$suppress-numbers = '0'
                    and @linenumbering = 'numbered'
                    and $use.extensions != '0'
                    and $linenumbering.extension != '0'">
      <xsl:variable name="rtf">
      <table border="0" bgcolor="#E0E0E0" width="90%">
      <pre class="{name(.)}">
        <xsl:call-template name="number.rtf.lines">
          <xsl:with-param name="rtf" select="$rtf"/>
      <table border="0" bgcolor="#E0E0E0" width="90%">
      <pre class="{name(.)}">

The key is that you notice I added a <table border=... bgcolor=...>
tag that wraps the contents of the <programlisting>, <screen> or
<synopsis> inside of an HTML table that is shaded.
