Due to the new long autosummaries, the current layout of Special:Newpages is
hard to read, especially on small screens (see example above).
The lack of dedicated CSS classes prevents code-independent changes (e.g.
margins, bolding items, indenting) that could be implemented locally, without
triggering site-wide UI-change syndrome.
Note: Unpatrolled entries currently have the "not-patrolled" class if patrolling
This bug can probably be closed. Special:Newpages can be styled based on the page-Special_NewPages class on the <body> tag.
Checking on various Wikipedia locales:
The page css class is localized. IMHO, this wouldn't be a proper way to resolve the issue, especially if said css was used somewhere that setup css shared across all their sites in different locales, or if a wiki tried to copy css from a wiki using the technique which was in a different language of the wiki they are on.
It seems like it would be easy enough to make it so that pages in the Special namespace always have a class for the canonical name in addition to the current class for the localized name.
With r70773 I added classes to all elements of a NewPages line. Should be stylable for all kinds of fashion now :-)
Also, unneeded elements can be hidden per CSS in case of transclusion.
