Two points: I've just redone the KHelpcenter Layouts, to use the new website 
graphics and something similar to their style.  Don't spend too much time on 
this if it's just broken layout, we can take a look at rewriting that 
sometime fairly soon, but not until I've nailed a stable layout (the one 
that's there looks pretty good to me, but it's still got a few quirks, so it 
will be tweaked in the next few days.)

The second, if it's just a matter of trying to locate the 
$KDEDIR/share/doc/HTML/<lang>/common directory, and considering the kioslave 
is for use within KHelpCenter and Konqueror, you may be able to use the 
solution we do in the Docs themselves, which is to actually use a 
help:/common/ url for the graphics and stylesheets.
