Marco didn't close the bug. I did.

Please note that I set it to 'Unable to reproduce'.

You can re-open the bug report if you can reliably show that the
doc generation fails.

If you can show that it consistently behaves a certain way, 
then we can track and solve the problem, I have no problem 
with that. But until now you're the only one that has the 
problem in a certain case, and you have been unable to show 
that the problem indeed lies with FPC, which leads me to 
conclude that the problem lies on your machine or copy of 
fpdoc.css, rather than in the fpdoc system.

The officially generated docs on the website do not have the 
problem. They are generated with the latest fpdoc and fpdoc.css.
I tested it with 2 browsers.

Note also that to my knowledge, the algorithm for generation 
of HTML or fpdoc.css have not been changed for at least 5 years. 
If you can pinpoint the revision where the problem occurs, this 
is fine too.

Hence 'unable to reproduce', and not "won't fix"...
