I'm a little concerned about forcing page designers (those writing CSS) 
to know XSLT. We need to keep all style information in CSS to make it 
easy for them. Making skins must be very easy or Forrest will only have 
one or two skins that are useful.

See the thread on "Forrest Customisation" for a more expansive 
discussion of this concern.
