Well, if we nail down the details I'm happy to do the grunt-work.

I think #1, #2 (fixed navigation links, titles) are a separate question
and just need to be decided upon by those who feel strongly one way or

For the browser, does the following match what you're after, Andrew?
- clicking chapter title opens the browser panel
- panel stays open until you click close icon
- panel contains collapsable tree of chapter/section headings
Alternatively, could just auto-open the browser panel if javascript is
enabled and window is wider than N pixels.

In addition we'll presumably want to meet:
- no external js libraries (or do we care, if we just reference it from
- navigation is optional, disabling js leaves docs as at present
- works on all reasonable browsers (anything not IE6)
- works online and in downloaded docs (except Windows .chm of course)
