Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Table Line Thickness

Hi Dean,
You could do it with a processing instruction, a tabstyle attribute is more appropriate. A tabstyle can be put on a table or informaltable element to indicate to the stylesheet that different styling is required. 
If you go with tabstyle, you can call a utility template named 'tabstyle' that  returns the value of the attribute for the current table.  The tabstyle template is described here:
To customize the frame borders, you would copy and edit the template named table.frame in fo/table.xsl to use an xsl:choose statement to select the frame thickness.  An example of using xsl:choose with tabstyle for table cell properties is shown here:
In the table.frame template, you could do that once at the top of the template to fill a variable, and then use that variable in place of $table.frame.border.thickness in the long set of frame choices that follow:
  <xsl:variable name="tabstyle">
    <xsl:call-template name="tabstyle"/>
  <xsl:variable name="frame.thickness">
      <xsl:when test="$tabstyle='thickborder'">2pt</xsl:when>
      <xsl:when test="$tabstyle='verythickborder'">4pt</xsl:when>
        <xsl:value-of select="$table.frame.border.thickness"/>
And then replace all other instances in the template of $table.frame.border.thickness with $frame.thickness.
If you need to also change the rowsep and colsep (cell borders), then customize the template named 'border' in fo/table.xsl with the same technique.

Subject: [docbook-apps] Table Line Thickness

Hello everyone,
Is there a way to control the thickness of the border of each table separately? The common parameter only applies to ALL tables.
Maybe an additional PI?
