Best Practices document - not best practices

The page at http://www.w3.org/2005/MWI/ refers to
a Best Practices in XHTML Design document at
http://developer.openwave.com/dvl/support/documentation/guides_and_references/best_practices_in_xhtml_design/index.htm .

However, that supposed best-practices document is designed and/or coded to
prevent the browser from doing its job of trying to wrap the text to fit
the user's chosen browser window width.  (Narrow the browser window and see
how the text extends off to the right instead of wrapping to fit within the
chosen width.)

Additionally, at least in Mozilla 1.7.8, when the page is wider than the
browser window width, a blue background that grows from the right (as the
window is made narrower) underlies the text, making it impossible to read.
(I don't know if that's a CSS coding error or a Mozilla rendering errors.)
