It will end up being a replacement for boostbook/xsl/html-single.xsl once I
have it completed, so you could try renaming that file then change my
stylesheet to html-single.xsl, although I haven't tested this approach.

To try it on an XML file, for example I am using boostbook/doc/html.xml as a
test file, place my stylesheet in the same directory, then modify the top of
the XML file so it reads:

[1] <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
[2] <!--DOCTYPE chapter PUBLIC "-//Boost//DTD BoostBook XML V1.0//EN"
[3] ""-->
[4] <?xml-stylesheet href = "boostbook-html.xsl" type = "text/xsl"?>
[5] <chapter xmlns:xi="" id="boostbook"

Lines 5 onward are unchanged, as is like 1. Line 4 is the one that tells the
web browser to use my stylesheet (tested on IE6, but should be compatible
with others). Lines 2 and 3 should be commented out if you get an error
about not finding the DTD.
