Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] striped table border colors
I realize it has been several months since I broached this subject. As this was a back-burner issue I have only recently revisited this. However, I have not been able to generate the results I had hoped for yet.
I am trying to customize the fo/table.xsl to address the cell.border.color as is the subject here.
My first question is that there seem to be two areas that refer to table.cell.properties, I am assuming the one I want is the 2nd one following the <!-- Expand this template to add properties to any fo:table-cell --> comment.
OK, now from the comment, and some dabbling, should I assume the right approach is to add that structure to my custom layer... or do I want to modify the table.xsl straight away?
The second and biggest problem I am having is that I am not sure what the right 'call' to get the column separators other than black.My first attempt as illustrated in my first letter:<xsl:attribute name="border-right">0.5pt white</xsl:attribute> <xsl:attribute name="border-left">0.5pt white</xsl:attribute>did not work, but seems like it might be going down the right road.
I have tried something along these lines:<xsl:call-template name="border"><xsl:with-param name="table.cell.border.color" select="'white'"/></xsl:call-template>
Not to throw more confusion at this with bad code, than necessary. What would be the correct structure to get the the column rules to turn white?I wonder if you might be able to supply some example of the code to do that?
I hope that is not too much to ask, but it would really help as I have run into a wall here.
Thank you kindly!

I have a particular style of table I am attempting to generate into PDF using the fo stylesheets.Specifically I am getting custom striped rows, but I also need to generate white rowsep/colsep or cell borders. I am trying to do this in my custom layer, and here is a piece of the xsl:
<xsl:template name="table.row.properties"><xsl:variable name="tabstyle"><xsl:call-template name="tabstyle"/></xsl:variable><xsl:variable name="rownum"><xsl:number from="tgroup" count="row"/></xsl:variable><xsl:choose><xsl:when test="$tabstyle = 'striped'"><xsl:if test="$rownum mod 2 = 0"><xsl:attribute name="background-color">#939598</xsl:attribute><!--attributes to change border colors?--><xsl:attribute name="border-right">0.5pt white</xsl:attribute><xsl:attribute name="border-left">0.5pt white</xsl:attribute></xsl:if><xsl:if test="$rownum mod 2 != 0"><xsl:attribute name="background-color">#bcbec0</xsl:attribute><!--?attributes to change border colors?--></xsl:if></xsl:when></xsl:choose></xsl:template>
Obviously this is not working, the portions following <!--attributes to change border colors?--> are simply variations of my attempts to get some sort of change to the table.cell.properties,however I could not find any sort of combination to get the result I wish for, which would be white colored rules between the cells of the table.
Is this even possible? Any suggestions?
Thank you for taking the time to read my questions./Gregorio
