	The problem is that this project is a largely volunteer effort. 
Volunteers will work on things that annoy them or that they are 
interested in, and are unlikely to work on things that do not 
interest them or for which they have no skills.  Or, if they do work 
on these things, they will usually do a poor job (at best).

	So, if you want the CSS stuff to be fixed, I would encourage you 
to try to fix it yourself and then contribute that back to the 
project, or try to find someone who is knowledgeable on CSS and 
willing to volunteer their time to help fix this problem.

	My guess is that the CSS we have now comes straight from the 
docbook project, which I believe is the set of tools that Ulrich is 
using to maintain the FAQ.  If not, I imagine it's probably copied 
pretty much straight from some other related project.
