Nice. The DocBook-specific version seems especially useful for
navigating through reference documentation like the HTML parameter
reference for the XSL stylesheets:


The Reference and Refentry submenus under the Document menu in the
site navigation toolbar provide some nice ways to jump around in the
XSL referenc docs -- the Reference one for jumping between the
groupings of related parameters, and the Refentry one for jumping
right to the page for a specific parameter; if you know the name of
the parameter or even just the letter it starts with, you can just hit
a key to jump to it (for example, hit the "b" key to jump through all
the parameters that start with "b").

If/when they release a Mozilla version with the site navigation
toolbar restored, I hope it'll be possible to make the
DocBook-specific toolbar available as a "plug-in" XUL application/
modification (at XUL Planet or Deskmod or Mozdev or wherever).
