You're just a big show-off Larry :-)

   We use a versioned directory on the Web site that has

So at some location you'd have your logos, CSS icons etc,
under a version/logo or logos/version

Any issues referring to that or is that done in the document build?
language+version+ whatever?

For each new (say version) you build it, then load it to the hp site
as well as archive it off for CD usage? A sort of 'build/package up 
graphics' stage of docbook? Sort of makes sense.

   This is controlled by a parameter in our build

Any chance of a cut down example of that please, or am I on the right 
lines above with an ant build step to collect graphics, language 
specific parts etc?

Thanks Larry. Some neat ideas there!
