Summary     : Common documentation files for JBoss
Description :
This package provides common files and templates needed to build documentation
for JBoss with publican.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build those docs referenced in the Description, and try viewing the HTML in WebKit browsers such as Chrome, and Konqueror.

Actual results:

In Chrome and Konqueror, the JBoss logo has a vertical scroll bar, which when used, seems to scroll the image 1 or 2 pixels either way.

Expected results:

Chrome and Konqueror (and other browsers of type) do not display logo scroll bars, and the image scales when you zoom in and out.

Additional info:

Email rudi offline and he provided the following info:

> Hey Rudi
> I've been reviewing some JIRAs recently, and came across this report about logo scroll bars in the Red Hat JBoss brand title page.
> Seems that FF doesn't have the problem but WebKit browsers such as Chrome still display the vertical scroll bar.
> I seem to remember the fix for this was ensuring the correct logo was referenced in the affected books. Is that correct?
The previous problem in Firefox was caused by SVG files that were set to
be fractions of a pixel wide; I confirm that I can reproduce the problem
in Konqueror and Chromium with the SVG currently in the brand.

That doesn't appear to be the case here; the logo we've currently got
contains no fractional pixels.

Could you please file a bug?

In this case, there were fractional pixels in the /group/ although not in the page size. 

Specifically, the image group was a fraction of a pixel taller than the page size and a fraction of a pixel narrower than the page size.
