RE: Print (PDF) Formatting of Spec - also, title elements

  Adobe understands the importance of CSS to its future business and is
taking appropriate action.  Adobe is participating the in CSS working group
as well as in the XSL working group.  Adobe is committed to making the
separation of style and content a reality.

Aha. Well OK, *previously* it was using html2ps followed by distilling.

Yes, the current version of Web captutre does not understand CSS at all,
regardless of where you put the stylesheet. This might change - I encourage
interested parties to mail Adobe and ask for this feature, to demonstrate
customer demand. If there are other good things that htrml2ps does that
webcapture does not, likewise. But that is a bit outside the scope of this

There is only one title per chapter, yet the expanded TOC has multiple
entries per chapter. However, since you pointed out that the title and the
h1 are the same for each chapter, perhaps that explains it.
