The dsl file is not meant to be changed often. But it's still there that
you need to change stuff to change the translation of docbook tags to
HTML tags. It could be simplified (read: we could use more docbook
default elements), but it would change a bit the layout of the FAQ. See
my comments in faq.dsl for the purpose of each element, and try removing
some to see if the result is still "good".

Actually, since it'll be converted from sgml to html, the layout
complaints/improvements can come later: it will only minimally impact
the sgml. I can (and probably will :) maintain the dsl file.
