there are a lot of things, I provided a 50 KB patch some days ago, so
that the resulting docs do validate against the xhtml strict DTD. I
probably should rebuild that against the current docs. 

however, I hope you took the xml/xsl from and

resp. one of the archives packages...?

the feather.gif may cause a problem, because some browsers don't handle
the transparency in PNG correctly (e.g. opera) 

Also I'm not sure about the right.gif. I placed it in the toc if the
link doesn't go down but to another document. (like in mpm_winnt or so)

would be nice, if you could add a <var>, too ;-) If this is in, I may
step through the files and turn the bogus <em> to <var>...

hmm. no. <div class="example"> does the work. I'd strongly recommend
modifying mod_rewrite.xml. i.e. use real tables etc.
But this can be done later...

please, please take a look at the build.xml at
<>. I realized another ant
caching problem (posted one or two days before...) and fixed that by
modifying the build.xml. 

Another Point: which CSS did you use? I really don't think that we
should take every provided variant but a few ;-)
