Yes, that's possible, but I can't say when I can change that.
Eventually, the introspector will get a complete rewrite shortly.

That's more difficult. Some 'span' entities such as package names etc.
are written one after another in a row to simulate a single string. So


each name ('zope', 'app' and 'pkgname') should appear side by side and
not on top of each other. Usage of 'div' tags would break that.

I am not a web designer, so what's the problem with the span tags?

Kind regards,
