Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Access to ancestor Font-size definition

There is no function in XSLT that can return the value of the current font-size, but 
there is in XSL-FO.  The distinction is that XSLT functions are processed by the XSLT 
processor such as Saxon or xsltproc, and XSL-FO functions are processed by the XSL-FO 
processor such as FOP or XEP.  The XSLT processor does not know what the "current" 
font-size is, but the XSL-FO processor does.

Depending on your processor, it may support the inherited-property-value() function 
described in the XSL standard. Since FOP 0.95 claims to support it, I suspect most do.

I found that in some case the font-size is too big or too small. So I tried to correct 
by using, instead of 0.9em size the ancestor font-size and a value. The first problem 
is to access to the ancestor font size :

             <xsl:attribute name="font-size">
                    <xsl:when test="ancestor::d:title
                        or ancestor::d:info
                        or ancestor::d:literal
                        or ancestor::d:filename
                        or ancestor::d:programlisting
                        or ancestor::d:literallayout"><xsl:value-of 

And I don't know what to put to replace my ?????

May be I'm on the wrong way, but I have no other ideas.

Thanks in advance for your help,
