Please, re-read the thread. The "folks questioning this install problem"
have explicitly been mentioning the use for documentation generation using
the fpdoc tool, not issues with reading FPC docs in HTML format (which do
include the file, but not all fpdoc users need to have FPC docs installed
or use their HTML version plus they wouldn't know that they should refer
to the docs directory for the CSS file when invoking fpdoc even if it is
there for the HTML documentation reading).
