First of all, thank you for the reply. :-)

I was afraid my email might have given a bit of a pedantic impression,
if that's the case I hereby apologize.

You say "when generating your docs". Does that mean passing some
argument on the command line, or adding a line to the BoostBook XML
file, or to the QuickBook file? Or did you actually mean "You are of
course free to edit the output HTML files in order to link to another
stylesheet"? ;-)

I'm glad that you're open to the idea, anyway. :-)

Yes that's absolutely true. I guess I'll just try to make it work in a
proper way, and if it works out I'll post a patch for the Boost
stylesheet. No idea when I'm really going to do that, though.
