I've been using DocBook 4.5, XSL 1.72.0 and FOP 0.93 on Windows and
noticed that whenever I run FOP on my DocBook source, I get the

WARNING: span="inherit" on fo:block, but no explicit value found on
the parent FO.

Here's a simple example that demonstrates the warning:

<!DOCTYPE book PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.5//EN"
   <title>My First Book</title>
   <copyright><year>1998</year><holder>Jane Doe</holder></copyright>
 <chapter id="chapterone">
   <title id="atitleid">
       <primary>a nice index entry</primary>
     Here's our Chapter Title
   <sect1 id="sectionone">
         <primary>anothter nice index entry</primary>
       Here's our Section Title
       Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. In
tortor nibh, facilisis ac, consectetuer eget, malesuada
       molestie, augue. Etiam non nibh eget elit tincidunt commodo.
 <index id="index"/>

Run the two commands:
xsltproc --output testbook.fo pdfdoc.xsl testbook.xml
fop.bat -fo testbook.fo -pdf testbook.pdf

and you see the Warning output.

The warning doesn't seem to be serious and I am not sure if it is an
issue with the FO stylesheets or with FOP. Is there a good way to turn
off the warning?
