Hi Mike,

So do you maintain two completely separate stylesheets, one for html and
one for pdf?  I'm about to do something similar and I can see issues
where one has been updated without the other.  Is it simply the case
when a change is required you have to make the change twice?

It's almost as if we could do with another 'generic presentation' layer
that gets transformed into the various presentation languages...
