You could submit them as a patch:


Category: DocBook XSL; Group: Website

Or, if you write your changes as a customization layer that
imports the standard stylesheets, I could check your customization
layer into the contrib/xsl area of the DocBook project CVS -


But whatever your change does, I would guess that it could be done
using CSS instead of nested tables. At least if you are designing
for modern, standards-compliant browsers.

You can submit it at the first URL above. Submitting it as a patch
is preferred. That is, do a diff between the original and your
updated version, and just submit that diff. Like this:

  diff -u old.xml new.xml > website-doc-patch.txt
