Looks great on my desktop, thanks,

It does.  I just now tried to look at the page from a phone and it looks
identical, which I guess is good (indeed in pixels, my desktop's browser
and my phone's browser (when the phone is in portrait position) have
about the same number of pixels), but it makes the site difficult to
read on my phone (I have to zoom on the various parts to read them ;-)
It's definitely no worse than what we currently have on gnu.org, tho!

It's more readable when I put my phone in landscape, but then this first
line menu ends up using a large fraction of my screen real estate so
I wouldn't want it to always stay on-screen.
[ I guess this is the only part which I could consider a regression
  compared to what we currently have on gnu.org.  And it's a result of
  what I asked for (and like) when reading on a desktop.  Oh well!  ]

To clarify: it's never occurred to me to look at such docs on my phone,
so it's probably not an important use case.
