Dear Editors:

This question applies at least to fo:folio-prefix, fo:folio-suffix, but also
seems to apply to fo:index-page-number-prefix, fo:index-page-number-suffix,
fo:index-page-citation-list-separator, and

Each of these objects has the following content model:
    (#PCDATA | %inline;)*.

The question: From whom do the child objects inherit properties? The use of
the term "static" for some of these seems to imply that they inherit
normally, that is, by reference to their ancestors in the tree. However,
that seems unlikely. It is easy, for example, to imagine an
fo:page-number-citation with a 12-point "Glossary-" prefix surrounded by
10-point text in a footnote. Am I correct to assume that instead this
content should be "grafted" in a manner similar to the way that fo:marker
content inherits from the fo:retrieve-marker that it replaces? Or would the
fo:page-number-citation need to explicitly set the font-size to the correct

In any case, I think an explicit statement in the Recommendation addressing
this issue for each of these objects would be helpful.

Thank you in advance for your help.
