I've just seen the problem (never notice before ...) 

doc-central looks better than dhelp, and dhelp have icons.  In my
taste, what is central in documentation is the documentation itself
and how is simple to access it, not how interface is fun (docs are
fun). By that point of view doc-central is doc central :)

I second the use of templates ... but at this time i can't figure
what kind of templates (other than the existing) can be created. On
other side a per-user setting should be usefull: one can require only
html, or only info format .. and so.
