Without consensus that the changes are an improvement, I don't think
coming up with a diff to the existing source is time well spend.

I don't get the impression that the persons with access to the CSS
files in question consider the rendering issues an actual problem.
After all, most of the issues were known before the layout got changed.

And those that agree that the rendering issues are a problem,
don't necessarily agree with the changes in the workaround.
For example it allows the page to scale with the browser width,
which I consider a feature, while others consider it a bug.

At the moment I would expect the diff to be either ignored from
the beginning, or to be reverted without discussion later on:
