Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] space-before question

Hi Steve,
In XSL you declare a parameter or attribute set and then refer to it by name.  You 
have done the first step which is to declare them.  Since these names you have used 
are not in the DocBook stylesheet, they will not be referred to and so they are not 
used.  If you want to override the existing DocBook XSL values, you need to know the 
names.  Those are defined in the fo parameters list at:


In the case of paragraph spacing, you are looking for the attribute-set named 
'normal.para.spacing'.  You need to change all three attribute values in it in your 
customization layer.
