(Jay, Rishabh)

The fill style "NONE" is different from "SOLID + 100% transparency" and has to be retained.

(1) You see the difference, when you use style inheritance. If you set the color to "yellow" in the child, you will indeed get yellow in case the parent has FillStyle="NONE" and the child will be transparent in case the parent has "SOLID + 100% transparency".

(2) When you use area fill for paragraph background, then you get interoperability problems, because other applications (I have tested AOO4.2 and Word 2010) do not get the transparency for paragraph background correctly, but interpret FillStyle "NONE" correctly.

(3) If a search for attributes will be implemented, then FillStyle="None" is surely different from "SOLID + 100%transparency".

(4) You need "NONE" anyway, because "NONE" is value of enum FillStyle in the API.

Kind regards
