I wanted to understand whether the documentation source was translated 
into HTML as a separate publishing process.
It would be elegant to represent the doc source in DocBook and then 
create XSLT's to create HTML and other output formats (automatic 
management of links)... ok, a low priority improvement, but maybe we 
should think about that before doing any additional work on the docs.
