Sorry Thorsten I got side tracked by prototype.js :)

I'm looking at using branding-theme-switcher.ft to switch <link> css
only. A corner image solution until corner image in <style> css are

My thoughts are:

branding-theme-switcher-profiler="false" needed a patch attached

If branding-theme-switcher-defaultTheme="Pelt"
In view file have (<forrest:css ...) entries like below:

(persistent | common - Is disabled=true allowed here?)

  rel="stylesheet" theme="Pelt"
(preferred | default - Is disabled=true allowed here?)

  rel="alternate stylesheet" theme="Pelt-Default"
(switchable back to default)

  rel="alternate stylesheet" theme="Pelt-Forrest"

  rel="alternate stylesheet" theme="Pelt-Collabnet"

  rel="alternate stylesheet" theme="default"
  rel="alternate stylesheet" theme="default"
(one switchable as both have same title)

IMO default.css and leather-dev.css could be combined together as
leather.screen.css (leather-dev.css turns off - "display: none;"
Pelt specific layout/structure). Is it default.css or common.css or
just another switchable?

  rel="alternate stylesheet" theme="Leather-Default"

  rel="alternate stylesheet" theme="Leather-Hot"


If branding-theme-switcher-defaultTheme="default"?
Hmmm I'll look closer at the script to understand this if
idea above is correct.

I understand if branding-theme-switcher-profiler="true"
<style> css with the same title as <link> css will have
disabled set false IMO only when rel="alternate stylesheet"
and disabled set true for other rel="alternate stylesheet".

Is disabled=true allowed here? Was a comment next to
persistent and preferred css above. Would all browsers
allow it? The script works great just trying to understand.
