that part i finally twigged on, but it doesn't exactly clarify why,
at the online FO Parameter Reference page that i refer to above,
why only *those* three attributes are listed as belonging to that

as i read your note, you seem to be saying that those three attributes
are the only ones defined by default for that attribute set, is that
what you're saying?  which file would i examine to see that for myself?
i checked out fo/pagesetup.xsl, but i didn't see a specific definition
for that, so i'm still curious.
