Ok, there may have been a few default colors I used to get rid of the
'warnings' , they could have been corrected afterwards but I'll try and
match them up.

Oops, yes I spotted that all the round corners were using id attributes -
except one which uses the class instead e.g. -





So I do not understand the reason for this inconsistency, my mistake was
changing the . to a # and not changing the corresponding xml.

Sorry, been dispatcher minded for too long now (that's another thread) and I
did not remember the skinconf.xml file.

Most of the 'Warnings' from the CSS Validator (which is basically a
judgement call, fix them if you want but they are not failures/errors) are
that there are missing background-color declarations when using color and
vice-versa. The W3C may insist on these in future as fallbacks so that
inherited parent colors do not clash with their children, so we may as well
fix them.

The question now then is, where do you want them ?
I will make sure I spend longer finding better default colors for them
before sending the patch in. The new patch I sent today cures the Errors and
so will pass validation. I will work on the Warnings next.

Bummer, I DID use spaces! For some reason, a few of the lines were (upon
initial opening of the file, before any changes by me) indented further in
that most, so I backspaced them once which seemed to get rid of a tab, then
spaced in 2 spaces to line them up again. 

This may be another Windows Quirk I don't know, my Vim is set up correctly.

Okey Dokey.
