#4 nice CSS file suggested for inclusion

DSSSL (37)

I think the included CSS file would be a nice inclusion
with docbook-dsssl (and possibly docbook-xsl, but I
don't use that so I don't know).

Here are some of the rationales for why this stylesheet
is better for online use than the standard output:

- it's widely known sans-serif is better than serif
for online readability

- consistent font sizes across browsers and platforms
via the px font sizing

- tweaks for prettiness and readability

There's a question on how to ship this. I'm not asking
that this be enabled by default. Some similarity
exists between this and the stuff in frames. I perhaps
suggest a new 'style' subdirectory (or find a better
name), with this file, the extra.css (not for Netscape
4.x), and the frame subdir.

    The attached file is a supplement to the other CSS file; it
    contains more spacing tweaking but is broken out as a
    separate file so that Netscape 4.x, which gets positioning
    all muddled, does not see these style changes.

    I added a section to the website (docbook.sf.net) for
    contributions and put the CSS files there.
