Hello Els,

1. XEP2_COMPATIBLE_MODE is related to inheritance issues so it doesn't
   make sense to use it in your case.
2. If you need top and bottom borders drawn around table header - just
   add appropriate properties on table headers cells like this:

   <fo:table-header padding-top="3pt"
                    padding-bottom="4pt">
       <fo:table-row>
         <fo:table-cell border-top-width="0.4pt"
                        border-top-style="solid"
                        border-bottom-width="0.4pt"
                        border-bottom-style="solid">
         ...
         </fo:table-cell>
         ...
       </fo:table-row>
   </fo:table-header>

Hope this helps.

EvT> Hello Alexander,

EvT> 1)The problem is the disappearance of the table header lines (above and
EvT> below the table header).
EvT> I was told that the option compatible mode might restore this. In the XEP
EvT> documentation (XEP 3.4 user guide) 3 ways are mentioned to control the XEP
EvT> options- one of them: "As a record in the configuration file (its location
EvT> is set by CONFIG option)." Further down, the XEP2_COMPATIBLE_MODE option is
EvT> explained, which I tried.

EvT> 2)I am not sure if border-collapse can do the job. I tried this (with no
EvT> effect) on the table level. What I need (on every table header) is a topline
EvT> and bottom line that separates the table header from the rest of the table.
EvT> I wish to do this in the stylesheet to prevent having to add row separators
EvT> in the XML instances. How can I do this with the XEP engine? When I add a
EvT> background colour to the table-header properties, this is displayed
EvT> properly, but not the lines. How come?

EvT> Thanks & regards,
EvT> Els

EvT> Hello Els,

EvT>> Dear RenderX. I have 2 questions:

EvT>> 1) When using a particular installation of XEP, this can be set in the
EvT> main
EvT>> XEP configuration file (Default: ~/etc/xep.xml), e.g.:
EvT>>  <option name="XEP2_COMPATIBLE_MODE" value="true"/>
EvT>> Is this also possible for update versions, such as 322? How? I've tried
EvT> 322
EvT>> and 3.22 but this is not allowed.

EvT> Could you please describe a problem with versions deferences in more
EvT> details? There is no option 'XEP322_COMPATIBLE_MODE', but there is
EvT> a 'PAGEWIDE_FOOTNOTE' parameter in case discrepancies caused by footnotes
EvT> behavior. I need additional information about your problem to suggest
EvT> something useful.

EvT>> 2) Previous version of XEP (I believe 2.78) showed top and bottom lines
EvT> of
EvT>> table-header; this is the relevant bit of the stylesheet for it:
EvT>>   <fo:table-header
EvT>>               border-top-width="0.4pt"
EvT>>               border-top-style="solid"
EvT>>               padding-top="3pt"
EvT>>               border-bottom-width="0.4pt"
EvT>>               border-bottom-style="solid"
EvT>>               padding-bottom="4pt">
EvT>> I do not see any lines with the current version I am using; is the fo
EvT>> incorrect or is this a XEP bug? (The Antenna House formatter does show
EvT> the
EvT>> lines.)

EvT> Border on fo:table-header makes sense only then table created with
EvT> border-collapse='collapse', but XEP implements border-collapse='separate'
EvT> mode only. Difference between XEP 2.78 and XEP 3.5 appears only
EvT> because new XEP version follows XSL FO specification more strictly.
