General ODS Style Elements
The following table lists all the style elements available for ODS style definitions. The
table provides a brief description of each style element and indicates the style elements
from which it inherits its attributes. An abstract style element is one that is not used to
generate any style element but provides a parent for one or more style elements to
inherit.
