I think you just gave a good argument for using cascading stylesheets in
the Wine documentation.

If the look and feel is set by default.dsl, then only users who have
access to the Wine source and have DocBook installed on their system can
change the look and feel. All other users must change each and every
file manually (because default.dsl puts hardcoded html attributes all
over the place).

Cascading stylesheets don't require a server. I modified our build
system to use one, winedoc.css, and all it requires is that we ship that
file together with the .html files.

Then users that don't have access to the Wine source can change one
file, winedoc.css, to change the look and feel of the whole doc.

For instance, to make the FAQ questions red and not bold, just
edit winedoc.css and replace

.question { border-top: dashed thin; font-weight: bolder; }


.question { border-top: dashed thin; color: #FF0000; }

Ok, submitting a patch in that direction...
