Padding on table-cells is currently broken. The sample fo file below

Am I correct in saying that in the collapsing border model any padding
is not part of the "collapsing", i.e. it only applies to the border
I think so (although I'm not entirely sure I understand the question).
As you are probably aware, in a table with collapsing borders, only
cells can have padding. With separated borders, the table itself can
also have padding, but padding simply never applies to any other table
(see for instance: http://www.w3.org/TR/xsl/slice6.html#fo_table-row
check the applicable properties, more precisely the 'NOTE:' on the
'Common Border, Padding and Background' properties)
So I don't really see how padding can be 'part of' the collapsing...
See also: http://www.w3.org/TR/xsl/slice4.html#rend-border
As I understand it, this means that the borders are resolved for each
cell, and the padding rectangle for a cell is contained fully within
its resolved border-rectangle.
Hope this helps (or even makes sense).
