These files are designed to style directly DocBook XML.

On generated HTML files you must use different CSS stylesheet. There is 
one exampla of a such stylesheet. Nothing fancy, but you can use it as 

body { font-family: Verdana, Helvetica CE, Arial CE, Arial, Helvetica, 
        font-size: 9pt;
        background-color: white;
        color: black;
        margin: 0px; }

table { font-size: 9pt }

.title, .subtitle { color: navy }

.screen { background-color: #e0e0e0;
           padding: 5pt;
           margin: 5pt}

:hover { color: red;
          text-decoration: underline; }

a { text-decoration: none;
     color: blue; }

.navfooter, .navheader { background-color: #80DDFF;}

.chapter, .refentry,
.book, .reference,
.preface, .colophon,
.section, .bibliography
	{ margin-left: 10px;
           margin-right: 10px; }
