Subject: Re: [office] review of editor's notes for attributes of namespacefo


Thanks for the detailed comments!

I can quickly respond on the ed. note that was unclear:

Oliver-Rainer Wittmann - Software Engineer - Sun Microsystems wrote:
> - ed. note in "19.174.1 General"
> I do not understand the purpose of this ed. note.
The ed. note is under fo:background-color and reads:

The reason for that comment was text that appears in the immediately 
preceding paragraph that reads:

> Fill formatting properties can be used instead of this attribute for 
> enhanced table row and table cell background fill styles. If a value

A better question would have been: Does "fill formatting properties" 
include only draw:fill or does it include other attributes?

Do note that the text says, "If a value for a draw:fill attribute is 
provided,...." If you look at the schema, "none" is a specified value 
for draw:fill.

I assume that means that if an image has been specified by a 
<style:background-image> element and a background color has been 
specified by a fo:background-color attribute, that by specifying a 
draw:fill attribute with the value "none," that I could switch off both 
of those settings.

I don't know that is what we intended but I think it is a fair reading 
of the text as it stands.

(Note that "enhanced table row" appears once and only once, here.)

If my assumption about draw:fill is correct (see 19.109) then the 
definition of draw:fill, which reads in part:

> The |draw:fill| attribute specifies the fill style for a graphic object.

is incorrect because a cell or row isn't a graphic object.

And so would that cascade down to the definitions of the various types 
fill which reference drawing objects.

There isn't any reason why we can't use one draw:fill attribute for both 
graphic/drawing objects as well as cells and tables but then our 
definitions need to take that broader range of application into account.

Hope you are having a great day!
