The goal of Amaya is to create web contents. Amaya doesn't respect CSS
properties that disturb the editing. For example, Amaya displays empty
elements (<p> or <div>) with a non null height as the user may want to
click on them and insert information within.
With Amaya, what you see is what you need to edit.
