[xsl] Looking for specification of Arbortext PubTbl pseudo-attributes

Subject: [xsl] Looking for specification of Arbortext PubTbl pseudo-attributes

Hi, folks,

I'm writing an XSLT/XSL-FO stylesheet for a client and they are working with OASIS tables authored using Arbortext. Arbortext seeds the OASIS table with processing instructions such as:

<?PubTbl tgroup clmarg="0.00pt" crmarg="0.00pt" ctmarg="0.00pt" rth="0.50pt" cbmarg="4.00pt"?>


<?Pub _cellfont TypeSize="8.5"?>

I have no specification, nor is the PTC response to my client's request for information at all helpful.

I can guess the following, but it is only a guess:

  clmarg = cell left margin
  crmarg = cell right margin
  ctmarg = cell top margin
  cbmarg = cell bottom margin
  rth = (I have no idea!)
  Are there other pseudo attributes?

Regarding the font size, I can guess the default unit of measure is "pt", but is that spelled out anywhere?

Does anyone on the list have a pointer to a formal specification of Arbortext processing instructions? Google isn't helping me find one.

Thank you for any help you can be!
