I have the following XSL-FO script:

padding-left="4pt" padding-right="4pt" padding-top="6pt"
According to XSL-FO 1.0 Section 5.3.2, your specification above will
draw the border *outside* of the parent boundary limits ... unlike
CSS. This guarantees that the text of the border block lines up with
the text of an adjacent unbordered block. If you wanted the border to
line up with the text, use margin-left="0pt" in addition to your other
Firstly, I would am still confused about the difference between
space-before and padding-before and padding-top. If someone could
that to me, that would be great.
The space-before= property defines the space between the adjacent
block area and the area's border rectangle (which is the outside edge
of the border).
The padding-before= and padding-top= both specify the distance between
the area's padding rectangle (which is the inside edge of the border)
and the area's content rectangle. The only difference between
padding-before= and padding-top= is that the use of
writing-direction-dependent values of before/after/start/end are
portable across different languages while the CSS heritage
top/bottom/left/right are biased to left-to-right/top-down writing
So for english it does n't matter what I use, but I should probably use
before/after/start/end? What about space-* vs padding-*?
That sounds like what I want to do.
Both spacing and padding are in play since they define different
Secondly, I would like the table aligned with the border of block before
Then add margin-left="0pt" to ensure that the border does not "push
out" such that its context text aligns with the text of neighbouring
