> The problem is that if we allow graphical hooks in leather we cannot use 
> it anymore as internal format for our future skin becaused we mix up 
> concerns again. The consequence will be that if we implemend a new 
> function we have to implemend it not only in 1 skin but in x and we have 
> to know where we have to place it in each skin. That means editing the 
> xsl of several different skins.
> The solution could be to use the contracts we have and introduce a 
> templating file that designer can use to place the elements whithin 
> graphical container. This would make it easy to create new styles 
> without programming xsl and still keeping the concept of "dropping in" 
> new functions.
> The following template shows the pelt skin using leather naming 
> conventions and graphical hooks. I will refer to this template as 
> forrest-template (ft).

> This template file contains all the information of how the new skin can 
> look like. Now let us see the big picture.
> 1) pipeline A - use the values of the skinconf to determine which 
> elements and functions are used and where.
> ****************   ***********   *********************************
> * skinconf.xml * + * leather * = * customized set of elements CE *
> ****************   ***********   *********************************
> 2) pipeline B - transform the customized elements with the 
> forrest-template to create the final page.
> ******   ******
> * CE * + * FT * = final skin output
> ******   ******
