Some earlier discussion of related issues:


Note that the viewport declaration is now output by texi2any, e.g. see
at https://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/manual/texinfo/html_node/index.html
I hope that the problem should go away if the manual is regenerated
with Texinfo 6.8. So as I understand it, there is nothing to be fixed
in texi2any for this. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I don't know if it could be fixed with CSS. If it could be, it could
potentially be fixed without waiting for the Emacs developers or
others to regenerate the online manual by contacting appropriate
people responsible for GNU webpages. Does anybody have a proposal?
