Hi folks, 

Package cygwin-doc files


all contain references to docbook.css: 

	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="docbook.css">

but docbook.css is missing from the .../html/cygwin-{api,ug-net}/

Could you please add docbook.css to the .../html/cygwin-{api,ug-net}/
directories in the cygwin-doc package.

Could you please consider having setup-x86{,_64} install Windows
shortcuts to at least the UG .pdf and index.html if present, in the
.../Start Menu/Programs/Cygwin folder? 
A Windows URL shortcut to would also be helpful for

Under .../html/cygwin-{api,ug-net}/ index.html duplicates the contents
of cygwin-{api,ug-net}.html: to avoid duplication, each index.html could
be replaced by a file containing only an HTML "symlink": 

	<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;cygwin-api.html">
	<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;cygwin-ug-net.html">

NIT: Why are these files installed in /usr/share/doc/cygwin-v.r.p/html/,
rather than the expected /usr/share/doc/cygwin/html/, where I would
expect cygwin-doc to install them, and where for some time I have been
downloading and installing my own copies from!

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
