Thanks for your suggestion. (I've CC'ed the docs list, because I think it's a
better place to discuss it).

It's actually better to use a CSS based site, but:

- the semantics you've choosed aren't really better. Now it's a div soup
rather than a table soup ;)

- Some time ago, we've choosed to take xhtml strict for the httpd manual, with
clear semantics (You might wanna look at http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/). I
think, that is the way to go, perhaps with a modified version for the rest of
the website.
