Subject: Re: [office] Open Office XML Format TC Meeting Agenda 18 August 2003

Dear TC members,

several suggestion regarding text formatting properties have been made 
on the TC's mailing list. I would like to summarize them for todays con 

Window Font Color/style:use-window-font-color
The style:use-window-font-color has been clarified on the list. See

Text Decorations/style:text-underline,style:text-crossing-out
There is a proposal from David Faure to enhance these properties:


Paul Grosso suggested to also consider the CSS3 specification


if these attributes are redefined.

Text alignment/fo:text-align
There is a proposal from David Faure to either add an "automatic" value 
to this attribute or to add a new attribute. Both of them would specify 
that a paragraph is either left or right aligned, depending on whether 
the first character of a paragarph belongs to a LTR or RTL language. See


Tab stop/style:tab-stop
There is a proposal from David Faure to specify the leading character 
not (only) as a character, but also as an (under)line style like none, 
dots, plain line, dash, dash-dot, dash-dot-dot. See


The specification for these attributes is wrong. They both are part of 
the fo namepspace rather than the style namespace.

Line Break
style:line-break has been clarified on the list. See


style:line-break, style:punctuation-wrap and style:text-autospace
All three properties are paragraph properties rather than text properties.

Asian font properties/fo:*-asian,style:*-complex
The specification for these attributes is wrong. They all are part of 
the style namespace rather than the fo namespace.

In addition to this, these attributes might be difficult to process in 
XSLT transformations. See


RTL/LTR property/style:writing-mode
This attribute is in the DTD, but a specification for this attribute is 
missing. See


There is a proposal from Michael Brauer to remove this attribute since 
fo:background-color is sufficient.

Font Declarations
I currently has an action item for including CSS2's @font-face 
declaration. Unfortunately, I will not be able to finish it today. An 
intermdiate state however is that it seems to be reasonable to me to 
adopt the SVG font-face element, that is already an adopted CSS2 
@font-face declaration, and to add additional office suite features if 

Adopting the SVG font-face element might have influences on the 
specifications of style:font-style-name, style:font-family-generic, 
style:font-pitch and style:font-charset attributes.

I hope I didn't forget anything.

Best regards
