sample file

1) Open attached file
2) Spacing is missing under the heading 2 'High Availability and Disaster Recovery (HADR)', space is missing above heading 3 'SQL Server HADR', and there is supposed to be spacing above and below the bullet points.

Tested on 4.3.1 on Linux and master on Windows.

I assume you already verify with calligra and other programs that use ODF as default?

jorendc: Yep, i only send in reports when calligra and ms word are the same and libreoffice is different. :)

Tested Softmaker and it shows it similar to MS Word and Calligra.

Regina: thoughts?

LibreOffice is wrong. The "bullet"-paragraphs have set fo:margin-top="0in" in their direct paragraph style, but no fo:margin-bottom. Therefore the fo:margin-bottom is inherited from the parent style "Normal Web". And there it is fo:margin-bottom="0.1458in" (=0.37cm). And that margin has to be visible.

I see the error still in Version: (x64)

Might be the same problem as bug 73590, which reports about inheritance problems with fo:margin-foo attributes too.
