I checked in some css tweaks for the DomTerm manual to make use
of the latest makeinfo changes.

If you're concerned that '<span class="category-suffix">: </span>'
is verbose I can look into using JavaScript to remove the colon.
(If you're fine with the currently-checked-in code I won't bother.)

One more issue related to definitions is the name itself.
The makeinfo output emphasizes the name with <strong>, but that
is not very semantic.  In my manual I use the color purple for these names:

I can certainly use a style rule like:

dl.def > dt strong { color: purple }

However, it seems adding a class would be cleaner.  Perhaps <strong 
Personally, I would also add a class="synopsis" to the <dt> element.

Neither of these changes are critical for my needs, and could anyway be added 
but I think they're worth considering.
