Subject: Re: [office] Start for a document about terms relevant for layout of text documents

Hi Regina,

It seems to me that the text "Borders are not between columns or rows but inside the cells." is misleading since it is seems to imply the "separating" model. For the "collapsing" model the borders are really between cells.

The text "Borders belong to cells, not to columns or rows. Borders are
not between columns or rows but inside the cells. Border width is set by
fo:border attributes and for the special case of border style double by
style:border-line-width attributes, all in
<style:table-cell-properties>. In case table:border-model="collapsing"
is set for the table, each of two adjacent cells gets half of the
calculated border width." sounds to me as if separated borders are
supposed to be the default. I cannot find this in ODF 1.2: 20.405 seems
to indicate that there are two models, separating and collapsing, that
are chosen by the value for table:border-model. There appears to be no
"default" specified.

As style it needs no default. Of cause, for interoperability it would better to define a default.
