XSL-FO 1.0 was indeed based on CSS Level 2, as was 1.1.

It's always hard to know what background to assume of a
reader; the specs are primarily written for implementors,
although for my own part I would like to see a lot more
consideration given to technical writers, bloggers, and
people rolling out projects using the specifications.

Most of the XSL-FO properties are of course shared with CSS,
and often the XSL-FO specifications defer to CSS for the
full formal definitions.  Hence the table of properties in
the back of the spec, of course...
