Here is my request from Feb 2, 2011:

	Peter, based on feedback we have received, I think our users want our
	docs header to look the same as our docs footer, i.e. few people see
	the value of Fast Forward and Fast Backward, and they want "Up" to be in
	the header.  You seem to have done all the substantive changes to
	stylesheet.dsl --- would you make these changes?  Thanks.

and from March 11:

	OK, so here is a summary:

	      o  remove fast forward/backward links
	      o  add book title where there is no heading
	      o  make book and chapter titles as links
	      o  make the bottom footer match the top header

Not sure which suggestion you want but anything that adds "Up"
functionality, either with the "Up" literal or the chapter title that is
"up" would be an improvement.
