It's sounds strange since Website is the DocBook customization...

I know but this way missing website navigation capabilities.

Thanks! BTW, I finish my customization for Website, it available

This styles in addition to original Website stylesheets support:
- automatic files collection from
  to output dir
- publications of big documents like chunk.xsl but with website
- additional step for tuning documents (added unbreakable spaces
  before mdash'es etc)
- publication of photos (with preview and links to big images,
  automatic convertions from big resolution to small)

Makefile for building available at
$ make depends; make website
