I just downloaded the doc build from 15 December in .chm format.  First the annotated file and then the un-annotated one. But both have the same problems, making them hard to use at best.

- The code samples are in an unreadably-small (2pt, possibly only 1pt) font.  It seems to be immune to resizing in the browser.

- The pages appear to be truncated in some way.

I'd provide a screenshot snippet, but can't see how to do that if indeed it's even possible.

php_manual_en.chm from Dec. 22nd works fine for me.

It seems to work okay under W7spWhatever, but not under XPsp3, which is the system I use for most work.  Did you test it under XP?

Just tried the Xmas build - same problem.

I dumped XP long ago.  Since Microsoft dropped *extended* support
for XP 4 years ago, and since PHP does not run on XP anymore since
5.5.0, I doubt that someone will fix this issue.

I'm closing this; anybody using Windows XP nowadays, may have more
serious issues than unreadable CHMs.
