[IPython-dev] nbconvert: trouble with the new style sheet

There are a couple of factors going on:

* We are now minimizing the stylesheet which obscures everything.
* We are transitioning to using bootstrap.  You may have direct
conflicts with bootstrap classes as well as ours
* Our css classes are horribly named - generic names like "cell" or
"selected".  To address this we are planning on renaming our css
classes using the following convention:


We probably won't have time to do all of our classes before 1.0, but
we can prioritize the ones you are having problems with.  Can you open
an issue for this and provide us with a list of the ones you are
running into?
