Hi all,

I never gave you an answer:

I would like to download the skin-packages and compare them! I agree 
that having only one CSS based skin makes sense. I will have a look 
whether I can use it! Please, tell me the skin-descriptor.

I am willing to have a look for that but makes hell lot of sense. It 
will be for us (lenya-committer) easier to maintain! A CSS-stylesheet 
instead of some xsl!

So let me know where I can get the whs-skin packages and I will try to 
get the lenya skin ported to that (with only the use of CSS). I will let 
you know about my work.
