Subject: Re: [docbook] background colour and font of the table.

Problem 1: Are you using DocBook 5 and the namespaced stylesheets? If so, then all references to element names in match and select attributes in your customization must have the d: namespace prefix. In this case, d:tgroup and d:row.

Problem 2: Add this to your customization layer:

<xsl:attribute-set name="table.table.properties">
  <xsl:attribute name="text-align">start</xsl:attribute>

Now table cells will be left-aligned instead of justified.

BTW, I recommend you use the docbook-apps mailing list for questions about stylesheets. The docbook list is really for schema questions, although that isn't obvious.

*Problem 1:*
I wanted alternate rows of my table to be differently colored.
So, i added a template to my customization layer i found at

<xsl:template name="table.row.properties">

   <xsl:variable name="tabstyle">
     <xsl:call-template name="tabstyle"/>

   <xsl:variable name="bgcolor">
     <xsl:call-template name="dbfo-attribute">
       <xsl:with-param name="pis" select="processing-instruction('dbfo')"/>
       <xsl:with-param name="attribute" select="'bgcolor'"/>

   <xsl:variable name="rownum">
     <xsl:number from="tgroup" count="row"/>

     <xsl:when test="$bgcolor != ''">
       <xsl:attribute name="background-color">
         <xsl:value-of select="$bgcolor"/>
     <xsl:when test="$tabstyle = 'striped'">
       <xsl:if test="$rownum mod 2 = 0">
         <xsl:attribute name="background-color">#EEEEEE</xsl:attribute>

After this i set the tabstyle attribute of the table to "striped".

But nothing happened. What am i doing wrong? Also What colour does
#EEEEEE represent?

*Problem 2:*

In the table suppose in cell there is a lot of text with long words,
then alignment of text gets disturbed. I can see lot of spaces between
two small words to accommodate the big word from next line like

| abd     ads         sbd |

| AnmolGupta ads as  |

It should have been like

| abd ads sbd             |

| AnmolGupta ads as  |

How can i do this?

Thanks and Regards,
