Hmmm... then it's a whs-like internal layout with a krysalis-site-like 

I really think that having an extra skin doesn't make sense in the long 
run, but I do think that it totally makes sense that one of our skins 
should be "skinnable" like this one.

How far is

I mean, would it be ok for lenya to usr the whs skin with the current 
lenya colors and the enhancements that we will pour in there from 
current krysalis-site?

I want to have a single css skin if possible, and have everyone 
concentrate on that. We can choose whs and have lenya use that, or 

In this way we will have tigris-style that is basically enhanced by 
Tigris (I use exactly the same css files), the css skin and the last 
tabled-based one.

What do others think/prefer as a CSS skin?
