The problem is that I would need to do that on httpd.apache.org because 
I'm using Acrobat web capture, and it will make some external links 
directly to the pages.  I don't want those to point to my local checkout.

Luckily, it seems that web capture is smart enough to automatically use 
the "print" stylesheet.  Unluckily, it seems to be using a 14pt font 
size, no matter what I do.  That makes the damn thing way too long.  I'm 
still working on it.

Yep, that is the direction I was thinking of going eventually.

I'm just at the learning stage as well.
