Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Caption spacing in mediaobject

You could do two things:

1.  Remove the para wrapper in the caption. A caption doesn't require a 
para to contain its text, and the para uses the normal.para.spacing 
attribute-set that adds extra space.

2.  Customize the template that handles caption, from fo/graphics.xsl:

<xsl:template match="caption">
    <xsl:if test="@align = 'right' or @align = 'left' or @align='center'">
      <xsl:attribute name="text-align"><xsl:value-of

You can add spacing properties to the fo:block element.  There really ought 
to be a caption.properties attribute-set, if you care to file a feature 
request on the DocBook SourceForge site.  8^)
