Two points.

First, all the css styles in the latter part of the <style> section of
webhelp.xsl are there to over-ride some styles in defined in
jquery-ui-1.8.2.custom.css. The point is, the said jquery css file is
'untouched' meaning you can upgrade it easily without hassle. (All
these over-ride css starts with .ui* which makes it easier to

Second, if you think there's a better to do the said over-riding,
please consider moving these into the positioning.css file. That's a
better option rather than adding another http request. The naming of
the file may not be exact on its purpose, but that's where all the
docbook webhelp related styles reside.
