Yes, I know. I've just taken the logo used on the flow3 website for now. As
my knowledge of photoshop like programs doesn't go much further than opening
and saving I think the image would only become uglier :)

I guess that shouldn't be a problem and it can be modified in the XSL.

That is something which will have to be modified in the docbook structure.
But before doing that I think I first should talk to Robert and/or Karsten
if there is a reason they put everything in one chapter.

Good suggestions. I'll keep them in mind.

Well, the idea of adding the logo came from looking at some extension
documentation, as I couldn't find any design rules for documentation in

As mentioned above, simple layout changes can be done by modifying the XLS,
but for others the docbook structure has to be changed.
