Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] height of rows in tables

Hi Ron,
There is a dbhtml processing instruction for row-height, but not one for 
dbfo.  8^(
It seems like a good idea if it is available for HTML output.

If you want to customize it yourself, compare the match="row" template in 
table.xsl for both html and fo, and adapt the dbhtml row-height code for a 
dbfo row-height processing instruction.    You want to add a "height" 
property to the fo:table-row output, and it needs to have units.
