The attached document shows how you can attach custom styles to

The changes are available from my git repository at 

Web URL:  http://repo.or.cz/w/org-mode/org-kjn.git
Pull URL: http://repo.or.cz/r/org-mode/org-kjn.git

Note that the above URL is my own repository and not the official

I am CCing Nicolas.  Just in case...
