Actually, no. It was the implementation of the HTML Help system that
didn't follow a rule in the style guide. The app was just the viewer,
not the style guide itself.
If you were viewing the style guide in a Style Guide app that was
designed and dedicated for just that purpose, then there would be
more room for mirth.
