Right - a new version of www/design.html is now in place.

Please review it, since it would be nice to make any possible changes
that can most easily be addressed by modifications to the XSLT before
manual edits are made to the HTML directly.

Once we're happy that we won't be needing to reconvert from the DocBook,
the doc/design directory can be deleted.

Once we are happy, I intend to make a sweep through design.html fixing
up the indentation - when I do so, should I work to a textwidth of 70,
72, or 79 ?
