New submission from David W. Lambert <lambertdw at corning.com>:

I use IEXPLORE version 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.-70227-2254CO 
without any known customizations and have observed 3 display 
problems.  (And since I guess that the python html libraries generated 
the manuals, could these libraries be improved?)

1) The browser ties underscores together into an underline making them 
hard to count.

2) The horizontal position of the quick links depends on the browser 
window width.  Very narrow and they hide themselves beyond the right 
window edge.  Sufficiently wide and they fit into the left margin 
where they sensibly belong.  At a comfortable reading width they 
overlap the text.  See picture.

3) The "print" function heading displays incorrectly.  Please view the 
attached picture.  Backslashes seem to display correctly elsewhere in 
the various normal texts throughout the documents.  Also the space 
character would be more obvious in a fixed width font.
