Ah, I missed documenting the 'sequential.links' parameter
for Website.

Turns out that this feature does not support the navigation
graphics.  In fact, it doesn't even support other languages.
The 'Next' and 'Prev' text are hardwired in the template.
So you can't change it with any parameter settings.
You should probably file a Feature Request on the DocBook
sourceforge site to improve this situation.

If you want to change it in the current version, you would
need to add a customization of this template in website-common.xsl:

<xsl:template name="link.to.page"> 

You would have to do a xsl:choose to test $linktest
for 'Next' or 'Prev' and substitute a <img> element
in place of the $linktext reference.  Since it would
need to use the relpath template to compute the relative
path to the image file, it is a bit more
