Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Table not breaking across page


Adding the thead element did work! Thanks for pointing out that fundamental rule. The table heading is repeating across pages.

But it still appears without a top-border. It still appears cut off!
Here;s a small excerpt from the stylesheet:

fo:block space-before.optimum="1em" space-before.minimum="0.8em" space-before.maximum="1.2em"><fo:block id="id2884219" space-before.minimum="4pt" space-before.optimum="8pt" space-before.maximum="12pt" space-after.minimum="6pt" space-after.optimum="12pt" space-after.maximum="18pt" keep-together.within-column="auto"><fo:block font-size="10pt" font-family="Helvetica" space-before.minimum="0em" space-before.optimum="0em" space-before.maximum="0em" space-after.minimum="0em" space-after.optimum="0em" space-after.maximum="0em" keep-together.within-column="auto" text-align="left" keep-together.within-page="auto" font-weight="bold" hyphenate="false" keep-with-next.within-column="auto">Table&#xA0;B.17.&#xA0;Attribute - Ctry Code</fo:block><fo:table border-before-width.conditionality="retain" border-collapse="collapse" border-left-style="solid" border-right-style="solid" border-top-style="solid" border-bottom-style="solid" border-left-width="0.5pt" border-right-width="0.5pt" border-top-width="0.5pt" border-bottom-width="0.5pt" border-left-color="#7CC2E9" border-right-color="#7CC2E9" border-top-color="#7CC2E9" border-bottom-color="#7CC2E9" table-layout="fixed" width="100%"><fo:table-column column-number="1"/>

Let me know if you need a little more context wrt to the fo file.

Do you have thead element in your DocBook table? Only table header is
repeated on the new page.

It's default FO behaviour, you can change it by using the following code
in your customization layer:
