Which version of Boost are you using for viewing the filesystem docs ? I
noticed that for most library docs the green background header does not
exist. But you have brought up a good point that some library docs have
that green background header and some do not and that variance might
seem irregular to an end-user such as you. However each Boost library is
free to create its own documentation styles.

For me personally I find the filesystem docs very readable. Maybe if you
specify which HTML pages are giving you problems reading them and why
they are problems for you the filesystem library developer will address
your concerns.

I did not create the docs. I am just asking about your problems with it.
