Well, I don't know much about CSS layout, only use CSS for text
styling. In my experience there are two ways to work around these bugs:
- keep CSS usage as simple as possible
- ditch defective browsers
The first point may not hold if you're an "artist". However we're
talking about technical documentation. I don't see complex layout
effects in the Erlang HTML pages.
The second one may not be fair for those Solaris users than only have
Netscape (currently the most defective browser) around.

I'd suggest defining classes for every component of the HTML page (big
title, small title, function, code snippet, caveat, etc), and hacking
the doc generator to add these. Then you could go adding class
attributes to your CSS as you see fit.
For an R7 documentation page with FONT tags turned into SPAN tags
(simple text substitution) and upside-down coloring see:
