Did you tested the whs skin for current SVN? I did not got it work 
without rewriting the half of it. I like the look as well.

So I see two options:
1) try to bring whs and/or lenya to actual trunk.
2) Create a new one based on krysalis and instead of tables use just div 
(more or less what I tried with the lenya one)

Since krysalis is the most well developed one I prefer 2). ...or do you 
have a For refactoring it would help to see a working 
skin ;-). I will let me as well inspire by

Have a look of the tab-select menu. There is no bottom border.

When I add &#160; and a new css element (test {border-bottom: 1px;}) 
into the <td/> there will be a bottom border but no border bottom left 
and bottom right! Please compare That is the reason why I 
droped the idea of the border bottom because it was not really a nice 
enhancement of the krysalis site.

If you have an idea how to have border there I really would love to try 
that and if it is working committe it back.

Yeah that would be a good starting point. I will add my ideas to 
FOR-182. I am willing to bring it in the 0.7 release. IMO the experience 
that I will make I can apply for a skin concept for lenya.
