OK, will do.

I have <bookinfo> rather than <articleinfo>, and I think there must be
a bug in the processing of this element.  yelp-custom.xsl includes

<xsl:template xmlns:xsl="";
    <img align="left" src="stylesheet/gnome-logo-icon.png" alt="GNOME

If I try to satisfy this by creating a stylesheet subdir of myapp/C
and putting a copy of gnome-logo-icon.png in there, then yelp goes all
weird when it tries to display the about page.  It doesn't show
anything, but spawns a process that eats 100% CPU trying to do some
info2html conversion.
