fwiw, publican supports a Common_Content/css/overrides.css file that can
override the default formatting to make it a bit easier to read. And a bit
of fancy xslt should make it possible to get a cross-reference table into
the current doc. but yeah, I'm getting rather sick of publican getting in
the way more than actually helping with all this.
