Yes, like I said before, scale-dev reflects the really early state of
development. I am actually surprised that you could use parts of it. ;-)

Actually if you are keen to make this style work you are free to do
whatever you want. Having said this you *should* try to use existing
contracts instead of creating new ones wherever possible. That is for
the sake of maintaining the contracts.

to 1) css should be changed
to 2) ~
to 3) fv should be changed
to 4) that does not matter, a fv can decide which contracts to include
and which not. It is only interesting if the fv should become an
official forrest theme.

If you can develop the scale.fv to a point where it is usable then we
include it to the official themes. 
1) We need for that a css (or a couple, depends on how you develop them)
2) a scale.fv. 
3) Optional additional contracts (but like stated above that should be
reduced to a minimum).

Have a look at the pelt.fv for more infromation.

That looks good, but I imagine you changed the css as well, right? Can
you come up with a patch?

Cheers for your work, Mirek.

Please keep on asking question if some things does not get clear.
