Without having looked at it closer I think using ANY framework will not solve
the problem. You'd end up barking up the wrong tree.

The problem seems to be located with current CSS settings a particular
browser, here Chrome.

The right way [tm] to handle this is to use a reset.css and then build
everything from scratch. You don't want to do that with the current website.

But if I were to code the CSS for the new python.org site I'd use a reset.css
in any case. It set the ground for equal CSS interpretation in all browsers.
That's something you can build from. Anything else will get you in trouble.
