No worries, I'm all for keeping things consistent. Right now I'm using
the BoostBook DTD starting at the <boostbook> element, which thankfully
includes <chapter> from the DocBook DTD (<library> doesn't seem to quite
fit what we're documenting). There hasn't been a need to create any
specific markup, but we might need it later.
What we *may* end up doing is tweaking the stylesheets to create a
different L&F. I'm pretty sure the existing stylesheets are designed to
follow some Boost guidelines, but Zbynek's layout got some good reviews,
so if possible we'd like to modernize them a little.
