Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Table Header Column Formatting

Correct, I am looking at print output.

I was hoping to be able to do column specific formatting based on defining a role in the colspec. This does not seem possible, correct?

As an alternative, I have been trying to put a role on 'entry', but have not been successful. How do I change table.cell.properties based on an attribute of an ancestor?

There is a named template that handles the format properties on each table cell, and another to apply format properties to the fo:block inside each cell.  These are described in these two sections of my book:
You could customize these using additional xpath selectors.  The existing template uses "ancestor::thead" to test for table header cells.  You could use "count(preceding-sibling::entry) = 0" to detect first cells in each row.

Subject: [docbook-apps] Table Header Column Formatting

Is there an easy way do define a stylesheet that will format the cells in a header column the same way the cells are formatting in a header (thead) row?
