And what about exteranal style sheets I am using? And I do not think that
this is a problem in any case.
Use postscript printer and print to file. Boost.Test documentation take
special care about pretty printing.
So even if you print it just as is it shouuld be good enough. If you have
any problems with prined version - let me know.

Javascript is a legal part of HTML at least for ~6 years now. And it is
standart supported everywhere.

I do not use documentation generation tools and javascript is the only
reasonable way to support different pages in sync.
