Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] QandASet rendered as HTML table

1. I am not an expert.
2. I might misunderstand why you are asking the question.
3. You will find that the entire page is made up of tables, not just
the qandaset. For a very long time in web years, tables have been an
effective way to make sure a browser will make an acceptable rendering
of a page. CSS has not been around so long - Docbook probably predates
4. I have a feeling that with the upcoming rewrite of the Docbook
stylesheets, you will have your CSS. (docbook xsl2)
5. It will be nice when they do more fool proofing on the test version
so that even I can figure out how to use it...
