no logic change here, the prev|next on the index.html page is the 
*local* navigation of the docset.

Nope, because that implies that there are two functions. Every time you 
reverse colors in prev|up|next the link goes elsewhere. If you do the 
same for the top icon, people will think that the arrow-up is no the 
same as the word top.

May be we should simply leave only the word 'top' or the arrow-up. In 
fact I think that to be consistent we should either add arrows to the 
prev|next widget or remove it from top. No?

why? to make a better separation? I agree with separation, but I really 
dislike the fact that the more <br>'s you add the more scrolling you 
need right away. On the opposite I'd prefer to see as much as possible 
content without scrolling at all. May be I can switch to the next page, 
without a need to look further down the page. That's why I've added <hr> 
to do the separation with minimal vertical space waste. But you 
disapproved it, so I've removed it.

OK, how about changing the title widget not to carry a bg, but to make 
it outstanding in some other ways. And instead make the [search| 
download| prev|next] widget use a different bg color? In this case the 
separation will be clear and there will be no need for any <br>'s at all?
