Forrest does take advantage of CSS. The trouble is that
you are incorrectly equating the "forrest-site" skin
with "Forrest". Any skin can be used and some alternatives
are supplied.

The default "forrest-site" skin is an attempt to address browser
incompatibility. We want to ensure that there is a skin that is
still useable with older browsers and other clients. There is
stacks of discussion on this topic in the email archives.

That said, if there are any tweaks that you can make to the
"forrest-site" skin, then please send patches.

That is great, if you can guarantee that all your visitors
use compliant browsers, or if you do not care.
