There is the Oxygen User Manual available on the website and in the 
application from menu Help -> Help but it does not include a detailed 
explanation of the Docbook XSL stylesheets. We can help you with the 
integration of the Docbook XSL stylesheets in Oxygen and usually (as in 
this case) we can help you with specific Docbook issues but the full 
details of these stylesheets are completely known only to their developers.
