One last thing...

I went through the BoostBook setup process several times because the
documentation wasn't very clear on one minor detail. When I got to:

"At this point, you should be able to build HTML documentation for libraries
that do not require Doxygen. To test this, change into the directory
$BOOST_ROOT/libs/function/doc and run the command bjam --v2: it should
produce HTML documentation for the Boost.Function library in the html

I did it and it worked fine but when I tried to look at the index.html in a
browser I got something that was readable but ugly and didn't match the
official documentation. I thought I had done something wrong. After
repeating the setup process a few times in different ways (i.e ) I eventually opened the html in notepad and
immediately realized that I would have to copy boostbook.css from doc/html
to view the page correctly.

It would be nice to have a little note attached to the paragraph quoted
about that mentions that it won't look correct without the css.
