Subject: Re: [office] FO properties

Yes, this is what I suggest. However, there are formatting property 
attributes from other namespaces than the above, and there are a few 
attributes in the style namespace which are not formatting properties.

If the <style:*-properties> elements are what you call formatting 
elements, then that's correct.

I'm not sure if you consider these to be single chapters or not. I think 
we may keep the current structure as is, except that

- we may rename chapter 16 "Formatting Properties" to "Formatting 
Property Elements"
- we split chapter 18 into "Formatting Property Attributes" and 
"Structural Attributes"

We may further want to move chapter 17 Data Types to the end, but that's 
not related to the formatting property topic.
