Looks good.  So I'm not sure I understand.  What are you using to
generate that page?  Cocoon2?

Yeah, I think it's a good direction.  As for style, I see these options
for the source XML schema:

  + docbook = may be too complicated
  + simplified docbook = may not be familiar to most
  + xhtml = familiar to most, but may not be expressive enough
  + stylebook.dtd = not widely used

When I had to decide on one of these options a while ago, I chose xhtml
b/c it was familiar and I though that I could always transform it to
something else later, but it turns out that there might not be enough
info in the source to do that w/o hand tweaking the result.

I'm not much of an artist so I can't help here. :-)

Thanks for taking this on.  I know this has been discussed lots of times
in the past, but it seems to always get dropped b/c no one actually
works on it.
