Subject [NOTE] Skin status update
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2004 11:21:28 GMT

I'd like to share with this list the point on skins and see if there are 
comments or nays.

As soon as I feel that the krysalis-site skin is up to snuff I will 
replace the forrest-site skin with it, of course using the usual Forrest 

Complete status of our current skins:

* forrest-site

Quite old and does not use much CSS. To be replaced in the near term by 
krysalis-site with the usual forrest color scheme.


Unfortunately this skin seems broken. Well, it works, but not as 
advertised. Hence it will as a reference for a complete CSS-styled skin 
till the new forrest site gets there.


To become the forrest-site skin, as it comes from forrest-site and has 
enhancements and many more styles in CSS.

It still uses tables for layout though.

I will be replacing parts of it with CSS-only layouts, first in the 
rounded corners, then inside the sections, and finally also for the main 

When this transformation is complete, the forrest-css skin can be removed.


Deprecated and unmaintained (Avalon does not use forrest anymore IIUC). 
To be replaced with tigris-style.


Based on the skin with no modifications to the CSS and 
images (only some extra CSS for minor adjustments).


New skin with a very clean look. Still to be committed but very promising.
