Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Specify FO output font size in xml element?

Hi Eric,

Take a look at the monospace.verbatim.properties attribute set. I know you can set the font there. You may also be able to adjust the margins (I haven't tried that in this context).

Generally, I always look for attribute sets first when doing a customization, because if you can get what you need done with the attribute set, it will save you having to customize templates.

I've modified the <xsl:template match="programlisting|screen|synopsis"> template in verbatim.xsl so that I can pass a width='1' attribute which sets the resulting fo:block to have 0pts indent left and right, which effectively opens my margins up. Another thing I need to do is pass a role="8pt" or role="7pt" attribute that will shrink the font size down on those elements for the really long ones. Is that something anyone has done before that could share a sample with me?
