As mentioned here...
Currently, the "Css" field of the form in the ''Index'' NS is not really useful,
because its content is placed inside a ''style'' tag in the header of the HTML document,
but only in the ''Page'' NS. I suspect a change behind this functionality, because in this book the field contains "largeur54" which is a class name of the MediaWiki:Common.css
It would be more practical to allow users calling a proper CSS page for any book, by changing the ''content model'', and maybe based on the ''TemplateStyles'' system.
In this way, it would be easier to layout a such table, or apply a negative text indent for each paragraph of this dictionary without using a specific template.
And of course, this CSS page should be used in ''Page'' NS, transclusions and exportation.
