<details> is nice!

The other that occurred to me was simply to pull the instructions up
inline, so instead of:

<p>To install this package, run in Emacs:</p>
<pre>M-x package-install RET ebdb RET</pre>

We use:

<p>To install this package, run in Emacs: <code>M-x package-install RET ebdb 

Saves a fair amount of vertical real estate.
