Do you actually know what CSS is?
I also take exception to your claim that defautl.dsl is the place to
tweak the look and feel of the documentation. I'm pretty sure this is

I am not trying to fix SGML. And I am not trying to impose any color
scheme on anybody either. Why do you imply that I do?
I'm just preserving what's already there. Furthermore I don't understand
why you absolutely want what little there is to be hardcoded in a hard
to change way and in a file that obviously noone understands, rather
than in a more flexible easier to understand place that's made for this

The above should be:
Any site that cares about this thing will probably have a customized css
file which integrates with _their_ site, not our idea how things should
