I managed to retrieve the HTML for one of the pages.  It's ugly.  The governing stylesheet
should be [tde]/share/doc/HTML/en/common/kde-common.css, but as far as I can tell
that's empty (file contains comments only), and the style declarations that are actually
used are embedded.  They're being added from various .xsl files applied when the
documentation is generated.

The good news is that I was able to pull out the names of the image files in use.
All are in [tde]/share/doc/HTML/en/common/ (khelpcenter/common/ is just a symlink
to that directory, on my system at least).

header: top-middle.png, top-right-konqueror.png
footer: bottom-middle.png, bottom-right.png, bottom-left.png

A lot of the other images seem to be from a previous version of the chrome, and I don't
think they're in use right now (there may be one or two exceptions).

Changing the opaque backgrounds of some elements may be a bit more
difficult.  Some definitions seem to be in
[tde]/share/apps/ksgmltools2/docbook/xsl/html/docbook.xsl , but there may
be others scattered around.

The best long-term solution may be to conduct a search-and-destroy on the style
definitions embedded in the XSL and move everything to kde-common.css,
assuming kde-common.css isn't auto-generated and we can confirm that all the pages 
import that stylesheet.
