    You can better ask these questions on the docbook mailing list first
    ( You can specify the hyperlinks using the
    following attribute set in your customization layer:

    <xsl:attribute-set name="">
        <xsl:attribute name="text-decoration">underline</xsl:attribute>

    You can also specify color, font-family here.

    Hope this helps.
