You cannot easily do this at the moment. In GNOME 1.4, help files were
shipped as pre-formatted HTML. With GNOME 2, they are shipped in (the
more flexible) XML format. So the help browser is required to apply a
stylesheet to the Docbook input and produce HTML output.

Now, it _might_ be possible to do this is every help file had an xsl
stylesheet processing instruction at the top. Something like,

	<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xml" href="something.xsl"?>

and if Galeon understood that PI. The first thing is not currently true,
the second one may be true, I don't know. However, this is not a
solution for now.

This sounds somewhat broken. For me (Galeon 1.2.5), man:... and info:...
are displayed in the Galeon window as I would expect them to be.

This is unrelated to your first problem and you may wish to investigate
it further, since it sounds like a bug on a couple of levels.
