I just had a look at https://github.com/Gnucash/gnucash-docs/tree/master/xsl <https://github.com/Gnucash/gnucash-docs/tree/master/xsl>. It’s pretty old, the docbook part is 1.75.2 from 2010 and the rest was lifted from an early Gnome docs beta and never updated. No wonder it looks like 2000’ish html, it *is* 2000’ish html!

We could go Gnome [1] or we could just use the latest stylesheets [2] from DocBook itself (tutorial [3]). Or we could do something else.
