What do you think of the new look and feel? I have updated
boostbook/xsl/html.xsl and boost/doc/html/boostbook.css. The latest versions
can be found at:

There has been discussion on it over on the Boost.Doc mailling list. If you
want an instant gague of what the new style is like, add boostbook.css in
boost/doc/html/ as reference.css - it contains most of the style changes.
Otherwise, you can run bjam to create the new documents.

I'd welcome any feedback and areas of improvement :). NOTE: you can edit the
CSS file to create your own look & feel :).
