That tells you how to add extra CSS - I'm trying to get at the classes
which are inserted into the contract itself.

Does that mean there would be the equivalent of an SSI for the css links?

But you still get stuff like "id="menu_1.2" class="menuitemgroup" all

I'd volunteer to write up the functions and definitions of the various
components, but I still don't understand. If we were to have a 'views
glossary' section do you think it should be a new doc, or stuck on the
end of one on the existing ones, howto-structurer-dsl, for instance?
