Adjusting the Footer Size
Adjust the size and alignment of your footer.
Let’s look at a sample footer to understand which attributes to modify to position your footer exactly where you want it. At the bottom of the page, a screenshot of the custom-attrs.xsl file displays each attribute used to adjust the footer dimensions.
The distance between the top of the footer and the bottom of the page
You’ll need to modify the “page-margin-botom” variable. This is defined outside any attribute-set in the root of the stylesheet. The default is 20mm.
The distance between the top of the footer and the top of the footer text
You’ll need to modify the “padding-top” attribute value of the “odd__footer” attribute set. Modifing this value will adjust the size of the footer, but not the vertical location of the footer (use E).
The distance between the bottom of the footer text and the bottom of the footer background
You’ll need to modify the “padding-bottom” attribute value of the “odd__footer” attribute set. This value can be relatively large to make sure that the footer background runs off of the bottom of the page.
