Well, that a problem. We cannot maintain have two versions of the FAQ.
It too much work and they will never be in sync.

I can see that one problem with the generated HTML is that it a
standalone HTML pages whereas for the web site we need something that
can be included by the PHP template system. But it seems that it should
be easy to strip anything before <body> and after </body>, even

What are the other problems with the generated HTML?

Clearly we have the same issue with the documentation but the same
solution can be applied to both cases. Maybe if you provide the
requirements someone will volunteer to write a script to post-process
the generated HTML files or do some DSSL hack to generate the right
thing from the start?
