Added a test case. Seems to be CSS box-sizing and max-width related. We'll need CSS3 box-sizing to fix it.

Added support for box-sizing to LibCSS.
Next is to add support for box-sizing to NetSurf's layout code.

Implemented support for the CSS3 box-sizing property in NetSurf's layout code.

This improves the page layout. At some window widths there is now no overlap. I'm not yet sure what else is wrong with that page, but it may be media-queries.

Traced the problem to a max-width width constraint being applied but that not affecting auto margins. Fixed in #4083.
