Were the only project at Apache that keep the 
in final 
HTML after processing thru stylesheets.  About a year ago there was a 
large scale stylesheet replacement at Apache and we noticed a loss of 
this title when comparing the old to the new.  Ever since we hastily 
resurrected it, it has been yellow, three lines high and 80% of the 
available width.  Garish is the word that has always strikes me upon 
looking at our docs.

I'd like us to consider going down a more designed road (confession I 
have no UI skills).  Attached is an alternate vew that I would find easy 
to do in the stylesheets we have.  


Incidentally I have used JTidy to format the HTML.  It is fairly cool, 
but Unix like in its love of STDIN and STDOUT, and though that has an 
advantage if considered to be a Java styler, it is cumbersome from 
command line.   I'll ask that team to consider an Ant taskdef.
