footer-height, header-height attribute

Used By:body, pbr and the #page CSS elements
See:footer header

The header-height attribute controls the height of the header macro, and the footer-height attribute the height of the footer macro, if they're defined. This is roughly equivalent to padding at the top of the page. If no header-height or footer-height is defined it defaults to zero, which can result in the header or footer macro overwriting the contents of the page.

This sets a small header on the first page

    #page1 { header:smallheader; header-height:20pt; }
    <macro id="smallheader">
      <p align="center">The first page</p>
