The intention was to give the image text another layout to distinguish 
it from the rest of the text. In books and other paper prints it is 
quite common to use a different font in italic for pictures. In my 
opinion it looks better, but others may disagree in this. Perhaps only 
one of the styles should be used, either "font-size: smaller" or 
"font-style: italics".

I am running the GIMP manual on Windows/Firefox or Windows/Opera. 
Perhaps other browsers gives a quite different display?

But with one drawback: As this stylesheet (gimp-help-custom.css) is 
called on top of every html file created, the style defined in this file 
will affect all users! Not only one specific language.
(Yes, I know it is possible to define your own classes or whatever not 
used by others, but that's another question).

No problem if amended on this list.
Some inputs?
(You may try it by copying the .caption {...} on top of this mail into a 
gimp-help-plain.css file and add this file to your local html folder).

Perhaps this is the best solution?
Moving the gimp-help-plain.css and gimp22.css to separate language 
folders (as i.e. in po or images). Then the stylesheets would be 
explicit to each language, not affecting other languages and the 
gimp-help-plain.css would be living up to its intentions.
