Subject: [docbook-apps] Table rowspans: Border of adjacent cells looks weirdin PDF
Hello all I have a question about the PDF output of tables with rowspans. The following table has a rowspan of totally 5 rows at the second column: <informaltable frame="all"> <tgroup cols="3"> <tbody> <row> <entry>1.1</entry> <entry morerows="4">1.2</entry> <entry>1.3</entry> </row> <row> <entry>2.1</entry> <entry>2.3</entry> </row> <row> <entry>3.1</entry> <entry>3.3</entry> </row> <row> <entry>4.1</entry> <entry>4.3</entry> </row> <row> <entry>5.1</entry> <entry>5.3</entry> </row> </tbody> </tgroup> </informaltable> When this table is rendered as a PDF the thickness of the cell borders of rows 2, 3 and 4 are different from those of rows 1 and 5. This strange effect depends on the PDF viewer and the zoom-level used in the viewer. Screenshots: Zoomed in: http://imgur.com/lj2Sc.png Zoomed out: http://imgur.com/FYN9X.png So far I've tried the following Viewers in Windows * Foxit Reader (pretty bad on most zoom levels, see screenshots above) * Sumatra PDF (the effect is only subtle on most zoom levels) * Adobe PDF (on some zoom levels the effect isn't noticeable, on some it is) Interesting: When setting a zoom level of 6400% the cell borders seem to match perfectly. So it could be a viewer issue after all. Unfortunately I normally don't read my PDFs at a zoom level of 6400% ;-) I tried the following setups: * dockbkx-tools (Maven2 plugin for DocBook) 2.0.9 and 2.0.10-SNAPSHOT * fop 0.95 * DocBook XSL-NS Stylesheets V1.73.2 and V1.75.2 * No customization-layer is used Has anyone also experienced this behavior with rowspans? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
