Yes, they are most welcome even :-)

Thanx for your link to the relevant part of the docu which explains
how to set the max depth in the toc. It works now.

It appears that the tags <legalnotice> and <copyright> are not
processed as well. I have this part in my docbook source:

  <title>OpenPBX Tutorial</title>
    <holder>Fabian Müller</holder>
      This manual is free software; you may redistribute it and/or
      modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public
      License. Please refer to the license in Appendix A, GNU General
      Public License.

The problem is that neither the text "This manual is free software
..." nor the copyright notice is shown in the output. These things
should be placed at the top of the documentation as you can see it

This could be fixed in the patch as well if anybody is willing and
able to write one.
