Subject: Re: [docbook] HTML output aesthetics

Btw., these questions are really more apropriate for the docbook-apps 
list, which focuses on publishing docbook (rather than docbook markup): 

For the first question, the parameters suppress.header.navigation and 
header.rule let you control those things:

You should be able to customize the qandaentry template from 
qandaset.xsl in your customization layer for each output type. Something 
like this (untested):

<xsl:template match="qandaentry">

<xsl:template match="qandaentry">
    <fo:leader leader-pattern="rule" rule-thickness="1.0pt"/>   

Play with the attributes on the leader until you like it.
