Subject: DOCBOOK: Looking to customize the look and feel of Docbook.

Hi !

I'm new to docbook - been writing in Docbook since past 2 weeks.
I just finished writing my first book byt cutting and pasting the sgml 
source from the Norman Walsh book!
That worked a lot better than trying to read cover to cover and trying 
to figure out what I need.

I use dbhtml to process my xml document.

I'm trying  to  create some cutomized look and feel.

For e.g in the html output that is generated, I would like the following:

1) A custom logo that is displayed on the header of each page

2) Turning on/off navigation header/trailer

3) Having gifs images that can be used inline instead of the prev, next, 
home , up link etc

4) Being able to set the foreground/background color etc for the pages
I understand that some of the above is done by modifying the dtd, some 
by using custom DSSSL and others
bye including my .css

I do not know the details of how to do any of the above though!
Reading Chapter 5 - Customizing Docbook did not help me much here.

Are there some sample documents that I can start  to get some or all of 
the above look and feel?

thanks a lot !
