Plain old design for perldoc.perl.org.

"Keyhole metaphor" in action! My display has 1600 pixels in a row, but perldoc.perl.org shows me text in a column of 671 pixels wide, other space is occupied by various margins. This is about 58% of the display width, 42% is wasted for useless margins.

My eyesight is not as good as before, so I need to enlarge characters. If I made font size big enough (by pressing Ctrl+=), I have one more problem: if enlarged page width does not fit to the browser window, the browser does not reflow the text, but shows horizontal scroll bar instead.

I have managed to kill this stupid fixed-width design. This is user style sheet for perldoc.perlorg site. It removes most of the borders and margins, leaving maximum space for the content. Also, it resets all the font settings, so you will see the page in your favorite font.

Tested in Firefox 48.0.1 on Linux. Released under the terms of CC0 license.
