I have only had time for a glance at the forrest-css. Pity.
This skin was supposed to inspire our general development:
* HTML style stuff in the css, not in the output html.
* Minimise use of tables.
* Standards compliance.
* Demonstrate best practice.
* Better rendering in text-mode browsers.

The main discussion thread started at cocoon-docs (thanks Tony):
[RT] Getting rid of the table-based layout
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=xml-cocoon-docs&m=103471154901016
then branched to cocoon-dev and forrest-dev. Many topics
were covered. Then Miles Elam made the skin/forrest-css
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=forrest-dev&m=103583691609120
and thankfully someone heeded NKB's email sig and added to Forrest.

We should not let those ideas wither. So if someone has
the energy, then please keep forrest-css going.
