The documentation can be built during the build process on a client
machine--which can be parametized by the particular user's preferences--i.e.
there can be more than one available XSLT transformation. There are always
going to be people that prefer fancy versions and people that prefer baseline
versions, and there is no way to please everybody at once without having
multiple ways to view the same docs.
