Hi all,

I'm new to this mailing list. I'm Eric Bischoff, from France, and I'm involved 
in several open source projects, including xsl-fo-proc.

As Arved said it here, we are currently wondering whether
	space-before="inherited-property-value() + 3pt"
is legal, i.e.
	<space>="<space> + <length>"

I'd like to add that the problem is even more generic. Examples:

	space-before="inherited-property-value() * 2"
	space-before="min(inherited-property-value(), 1cm)"
	space-before="min(
		inherited-property-value(space-before),
		inherited-property-value(space-after))"

In more formal words:

	<space>="<space> * <numeric>"
	<space>="min(<space>, <length>)"
	<space>="min(<space>, <space>)"

and so on.

All of these combinations could be generated by some style sheet with some 
purpose. As Arved said, the XSL-FO specification does not seem to mention any 
of these in the examples, but the explanation texts seem to open the door to 
such combinations.
