Hi Marshall

Great job, now we only need to start outputting real XHTML documents :-)

* In Opera 7.21 the Search box is located in the bottom of the page on 
top of the "Last Published"-text.

To be more similar to the older skins (the "skin contract" ?) and keep 
in sync with comment in top of the site2xhtml.xsl file, you should maybe 
keep the merged XML form to have div like:

  <div class="menu">
  <div class="tab">
  <div class="content">

and add id attibute (and maybe remove the class attribute).

One more thing:
One nice feature used in many web sites is to center the whole body 
content ("margins"). One easy way is to use a "wrapper" (aka: design 
pattern "decorator") like this:
 <div id="bodyContentWrapper">
    <xsl:call-template name="topStrip" />
    <xsl:call-template name="centerStrip"/>
    <xsl:call-template name="bottomStrip"/>
