Layout change to *-intro.xml

Here's my proposal for changes to the intro layout.

I don't like the old one, but the problem is that I don't particularly
like this one either - it's just the best I've managed to do after
playing with docbook for quite a while.

Look at these two example pages:

Note that the PREV, NEXT, UP etc. links don't work because those are the
only two files in that location and they aren't in the right
directories; they're just examples.

If someone can come up with a better idea I'd be pleased as anything to
recieve it (in DoxbookXML format to the list and/or me directly).

Don't worry - nothing will be changed until everyone has had the chance
to comment, suggest changes, suggest totally new ideas etc.

Once the decision has been made, I'll do all the changes to the book in
one large run (I'll set aside a few hours to do it at that point).


PS - I'll get back to the /opt thread and everything else soon; I'm all
docbook'd out after playing with this tonight.
