It is already in place:
$ head -n 7 dist.i686-pc-linux-gnu/docs/html/r.random.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<title>GRASS GIS: r.random</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;
<link rel="stylesheet" href="grassdocs.css" type="text/css">
notice how the <H2> text is already green+sans? and all the <div
class=code> sections in the examples?
grassdocs.css is in tools/
I see no compelling reason to add a new class for module names, etc.
