MySQL documentation,.... will it ever look as good as Oracle docs?

This is probably the wrong place, and probably has a tiny chance of ever happening,... (and pardon the rant),...

I hate the layout of MySQL documentation. IMHO it looks plain awful and I find it difficult to read with all the URL link colors, use of upper/lower case, underlining. I am really hoping that some day Oracle will rewrite it in a decent format.

Compare,...

MySQL doc page:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/repair-table.html

Oracle doc page:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/server.111/b28318/backrec.htm#i1007289

Is there even a remote chance this might happen? Do others get the same headache reading MySQL docs as I do? Perhaps I need to shell out $$ for some books?...
