Is there documentation for XB anywhere?

Lots of little questions which some documentation might help with.

For example, in Core, the font is set as "@xb_webfont_primary" but where's that defined?

What does a "footer layout" of 1 mean?
Unfortunately it's one thing we're lacking in is the documentation.

With 1.4 we moved a lot of the initial setup of the style into : [XB] General

The primary fonts/sizes, border radius, width is all there now.

I think Brivium released a documentation add-on which could help speed up the process.
