    Hello XEP crew:

    I have the following:
            start-indent="from-parent() + 1.5em"

    On processing in XEP 3.7.7 client, I receive the following message:
    [warning] Bad attribute start-indent: Cannot add type Word to type Length

    I get the same warning with:
            start-indent="from-parent(start-indent) + 1.5em"

    If I leave off the "+ 1.5em", it runs with no errors or warnings, so it
    appears that the "from-parent" function works, but that the processor
    objects to the additive expression.

    It seems like I should be able to do this (see note in Sec. of the
    XSL-FO spec), and I don't see any limitation noted in the XEP doc. Should
    this work?

    BTW, my purpose is to progressively indent nested lists, and I realize that
    there may be other ways to accomplish this.

    Thanks very much.
