Will check those in a day or three.... (and likely switch to that).  
Want to do something like a colouriser (whenever I can get to it),  for 
a site. 40% of the time I use the same skin, but with different colour 
schemes and logos.

 I like the idea of componentizing the xslt. Next nice step should be 
something like seperate component definitions, being able to define any 
format shape or size of component for whatever purpose, including having 
components within components (e.g. portal window or sideline minders, 
references, additional information blocks, being able to add case blocks 
within text etc.)

Also useful .... assuming that would get rid of the rounded corner 
bitmaps. --- colour changing those were a little painfull. ( have my own 
template where they were removed, and borders adapted. not have have to 
change them).
