Of course, that's what CSS is for, to specify how the browser must render

Did you refresh your browser's cache ?

That is just more HTML being generated, not the way HTML is generated, and
thus beside the point.
Did you actually look at the diff I sent for the 2 pages which are displayed
1. You sent me the links for 2 pages that look different.
2. I confirm they are looking different in the browser.
3. Then I downloaded both pages with wget.
4. I made a diff.
5. I pasted the diff in my mail.
As you can see from the diff, the generated HTML is 100% the same for the part
that looks different. The ONLY difference is in the CSS and the HTML doctype
If you claim that different HTML is being generated *for the same information*,
then please demonstrate it with a proper diff that proves your point.
