This is definitely better than requiring a Javascript, but it won't 
solve the conditional GET problem.  The Last-Modified header needs to be 
set to the date/time the xdoc was last touched, instead of the date/time 
forrest was run, since forrest will run every few hours w/ forrestbot, 
even though the pages aren't modified.

Thanks.  Forrest is great, so I wouldn't mind contributing the skin. 
There is definitely some project-specific stuff in there (navigation is 
a huge one), but that could be cleaned up.  Hopefully I will have some 
time to do that over Christmas vacation.
