Barely, at best; that how-to is somewhat unfinished. But at least it 
references what I take to be the authorative directory hierarchy.

Although those stylesheets don't seem to be accompanied by much in the area 
of documentation (hardly even any comments /in/ them). And clearly there 
have been nontrivial decisions which went into the design of them; for 
example, I've spotted parts of a priority-based system for conditionally 
parenthesising subexpressions. I don't suppose there is some documentation 
of them elsewhere?
