Thank you for your comments.
  Actually, the example is correct. The font-weight property is inherited,
thus can be attached to any fo above fo:block or fo:character (which use
the property).
  We have gotten a number of requests to clarify/correct the DTD. We used
the DTD to identify where properties are USED, not where thay maybe
assigned. The common uses of DTDs do the latter, so we will fix this in the
next draft.
