And if we add a gimp-help-custom.css it will overwrite the user's 
stylesheet on every update.

That's why I think we should not add a gimp-help-custom.css for any 
purpose -- let the user add his own stylesheet if he wants to make 
some personal customizations.

This feature is still there, look for the string "Copying 

        for file in $(srcdir)/stylesheets/*.css \
                    $(srcdir)/stylesheets/$*/*.css; do \
                if [ -f $${file} ]; then cp -f $${file} html/$*; fi; \

Any CSS file in an language-specific subdir is copied to html (and 
overwrites the general CSS file which is copied before).

Unless the above code is broken, it is possible. Just copy and edit.

This depends on the browser.
