+ Implementation
+ Future development work - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Hde6OjJLxDtabQ-BKbsMDRTbnH12x3KI00s3LHSnE3k/edit?usp=sharing
+ Two styles missing for statistics and invoices with special care for first/last column and header/footer row resp. (Regina)
+ Avoid vertical grid lines, too much colors
+ Have ~4 plain and simple styles and ~4 colored but what else? (Heiko)
+ Alternatively, design some basic themes and colorize them differently (Jay)
+ How to implement the styles
+ styles.xml is generated from a binary format which resides at /core/extras/source/misc_config/autotbl.fmt
+ enhancement request to replace binary format by xml in tdf#107560; workaround needed
+ the style is rather a template and accomplished by switches what attribute of the template is being used (Regina)
