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'"/>

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!

Hi Gregorio,
Borders within a table are set on table cells, not on rows.  I believe the reason for that must be cell spans, which can put the bottom of a cell in one row in the next row or several rows.
Customize the template 'table.cell.properties' from fo/table.xsl to set the custom borders.

Subject: [docbook-apps] striped table border colors


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 name="rownum">
    <xsl:number from="tgroup" count="row"/>
    <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 test="$rownum mod 2 != 0">
      <xsl:attribute name="background-color">#bcbec0</xsl:attribute>
<!--?attributes to change border colors?-->    

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.
