Discussion of Work Package 5.3 Style Properties
The TC continued the discussed of text formatting properties as 
described in section 3.10 of the OpenOffice.org XML specification.

The TC discussed the proposal for text decoration attributes based on 
CSS3 (see 
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/office/200308/msg00026.html). It 
has been proposed that the specification should also allow to specify 
custom underline styles that are not covered by CSS3 so far. This could 
for instance achieved by combining the underline-type and 
underline-style into a single attribute that can take the combinations 
of the existing attribute values, but also the name of an underline 
style that is specified elsewhere in the document. This underline style 
may also include the underline-width. For the underline width, it has 
been discussed whether fixed length values should be specified for the 
values "thin", "medium" and "thick", and that a value like "bold" is 
missing that specifies a font height based underline width that is wider 
than an "auto" line in CSS3. Paul Langille will clarify the usage of 
styles for underlining on the TC's mailing list.

The TC unanimously agreed to replace the "fo:score-spaces" with the more 
specific attributes "text-underline-mode" and "text:line-through-mode".

The TC also unanimously agreed to enhance the specification for 
crossing-out with lines by crossing-out with characters as proposed in 
However, the details for this have to be clarified after the 
specification for crossing-out itself has been agreed. The TC 
unanimously agreed to apply the extensions for crossing-out with 
characters also to underlining.

The TC didn't identify a requirement to add CSS3's overlining feature.

The TC further unanimously agreed to change the specification for 
<style:tab-stop> as proposed in 
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/office/200308/msg00030.html, that 
is, to specify leader line styles and characters in the same way as 

The TC additionally unanimously agreed to adopt CSS2's/SVG's font-face 
declaration as proposed in
