Currently, the stylesheets are hard-coded to use "font-style=italic" as the sole attribute on the fo:block for a comment/remark. I think it would be useful to have an attribute set for comments/remarks so this can be customized easily.
Patch to add "comment.properties"
Bob, can you please verify the attached patch? I modeled it after "monospace.properties", so I hope I got all the places where an attribute set must be registered.
I chose "comment.properties" over "remark.properties" for consistency with "show.comments", please tell me whether you agree with that. Also, should there be two different property sets for comment blocks vs inline comments?
Bob, could you have a look at my patch?
