Thank you Eli. I did take a look but I'm not familiar enough with the subject 
to understand everything. I'll take more time to read the relevant sections 
again later.

Right now I'm testing the CSS I wrote on the Elisp reference, there are issues 
with the underlying texi code (mostly related to @example/@group sections) and 
how they are rendered in HTML but I'll just put that on a memo to work on 
later. I'll then check it with the intro, the emacs manual and the other 
manuals. And when I have something that I'm happy with will send it to 

As I wrote earlier on emacs-devel, there seems to be a lot of areas when the 
HTML output could be improved. If that can be done with customization variables 
that would be great.
