Thanks for the pointer. [.. looking ..] nice, didn't realize you guys
were using Django, that's my favorite web framework.

At the moment I'm poking through the SGML documentation pages. There
are some common  and easy-to-fix errors (mostly nesting of <para>
nodes which produces bogus HTML, e.g. acronyms.sgml). I should be able
to post a patch this weekend to fix a whole bunch of these.

Then there is some broken HTML produced by <xref> nodes which look
alright in the sgml source (e.g. history.sgml), and I'm betting comes
from problems in stylesheet.dsl. I don't have a fix for these at the
moment, since I'm unfamiliar with DSSSL.
