I have not done any docs on this unfortunately :-(

What you can do is to take a look at the krysalis-site and tigris-style 
skins that already use them, and take a look at the names of the corner 
images. You can experiment with them by simply calling the right 
filename in the browser.

They should be something like:


With the wildcards being:

   path to the xslt that creates the corner (in the common skin we have
                                             two ready)
   orientation top or bottom (t or b)
   orientation left or right (l or r)
   size (pixels)
   background color name as in the skin color profile
   the stroke color name as in the skin color profile
   the foreground color name as in the skin color profile

The pipeline that generates them is resources.xmap.

NOTE: the pngs have a problem due to the gamma setting being interpreted 
differently in browsers. I minimized the difference, but maybe it's 
better if we use lossless jpeg instead in the future.
