One of the realities of contemporary document methodology is that in
environments where products are small variations on themes, documents are
rigidly structured and content is heavily leveraged, style sheets are often
carved in stone and management just wants the doc team to dig out the
differences in the new products, plug them into the right places and then hit
the "publish" button.
