Sounds good. I would like to try the same kind of title page for the
hardcopy docs, so perhaps we can do this within the sgml (but hand-built
html for the html docs is fine too).

That would be fine. I put them together originally only because each was
fairly small. But both have grown at least a little and you are right,
they are for distinct audiences.
