Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Footnote alignment

This is a bug in the DocBook stylesheet.  The footnote template should be
resetting the text-align property so it doesn't inherit it.

Until this is fixed, you will need to customize the match="footnote"
template in fo/footnote.xsl:

        <fo:footnote-body font-family="{$body.fontset}"

The last attribute is the property you need to add.

> Using version 1.65.1 of Norm Walsh's stylesheets to generate XSL-FO and
