Yes - this is correct - really helpful :-)

(Well actually, no, :-( This behaviour is *really* unhelpful!

I've asked for help on the Doxygen bugzilla site.

Thanks - that is really useful advice, and I'm now using IE9 with the Dev Toolbar - neat way to
fiddle with things,
and check syntax.

I've finally got a watermark, but only by altering the .css.

(Problem was expecting draft.png in the /html folder, not where I expected, the folder above
containing the .css. Doh!)

I've used a custom Doxygen header.html which includes this line

<body style="background-image: url(../../images/draft.png);">

Or does the stylesheet override this?

This could be really tidy - and useful.

(and a 'standard' way of changing the syntax colouring scheme too - as you have previously

I'd also like to cater for Doxygen Standalone with Doxygen custom reader and footers.

Despite some people disliking Doxygen Standalone, it is much quick to build than the full toolchain.
I believe it should be used at first to check, for example, that all parameters and returns etc. are
documented with \param and \return,
and making sure all Doxygen comments are correct, before trying to build the full docs using
