Right now, it's not very easy to modify the style of Drupal pages.

I think loading a project CSS file from the Mozdev theme for Drupal is a good 
idea; I've added bug#20075 to track this idea.

If there are validation errors with Drupal pages we'll need to bring them up 
with the respective upstream projects after figuring out what's wrong.

I don't believe Drupal's wiki is currently setup to have a breadcrumb trail to 
get you back from where you've been.  A ToC is supported to give links to 
headings within the same page (see Mozdev Docs [2]).  Otherwise, getting back 
to the "main wiki page" is typically just achieved by clicking on the "wiki" 
link in the left nav bar.  Maybe I'm misunderstanding your usage?
