I'm happy with something that's easy for everyone :)

Read it several times...hence the major change in latka's docs.

I wouldn't know for sure, since I wasn't around when they were 
originally set up. Hence the replacements generated using the stylesheet 
version of anakia.

This sounds fine for me. I think Latka would benefit from getting docs 
into a standard place, and being part of a regular update. Part of what 
I've done is rework the existing docs and build process into something 
that creates html from anakia's document format (via docbook).

Ok, I've created a new latka directory in jakarta-commons/docs and 
updated the build file so that webpages builds will go into that 
directory. I've built our documentation into that directory and tested 
locally, and committed into jakarta-commons/docs/latka

If this is ok by you, i think they're ready to go.
