We're using it for more -- to flip through the examples.  Most of
these browsers won't even use the CSS so things that should be hidden
are not.  So the change I did makes things better in the fact that the
display shows something sensible rather than the mess that it showed
before -- it now shows each example with its explanation rather than
all of the examples and then all of the explanations.

[Besides supporting such browsers to some extent (for example, there's
no sane way to get the documentation search to work there), it's also
useful in the sense that it's closer to what crawlers see.]
