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

Wouldn't manually removing the padding-top="2pt" and 
padding-bottom="2pt" apply to all rows - then I'd have to set 
row-height for every row?
I get no error messages when setting negative row-heights.
When I set row-height="0cm" (without removing any padding) I get a 
different result from -3cm - see attached file and compare the second 
row up from the bottom (0cm) with the fourth row up (-3cm).  The -3cm 
is narrower, and the 0cm same as the default value.  Surely some 
negative row-height is being deducted from the default?
