Hallo Michael,

I have applied your patch and tested it with the english documentation and 
some language documentation.

I like the new design but noticed two problems:

1) You changed footer.teamname from "KDE Docs Team" in 
kdelibs/kdoctools/docbook/xsl/common/en.xml to "software author" in 
I'd like to leave it as "KDE Docs Team" and this entry needs to be defined as 
now in kdoctools/docbook/xsl/common/en.xml to make it translatable.

2) A documentation generated with meinproc4 path/to/index.docbook looks 
different wrt the position of header/footer and navigation elements, see 
attached screenshot.
