How does one control the specifications for the various border styles for tables, etc. I know how to select the line styles - solid, dashed, double, groove, etc and the line widths - but can finer control for each of these be defined? I want to modify the length of dashes and the spacing between dashes for the 'dashed' style. I can't find anything in the W3C XSLT specification, apart from the fact that you specify those names for border style and that CSS properties apply. I'd like to know if this is possible for FO and HTML output. I'm using DocBook 5 with XEP and Saxon 6.5.5.

You wouldn't expect to find anything in the XSLT specification. XSLT can transform into any target vocabulary you care to specify, but it doesn't concern itself with what the target vocabulary contains.
