It is a cleaned version of the HTML. Cleaned in the sense that content 
with no equivalent in XDoc will have gone.

This will no longer be referenced, but the HTML produced will still have 
the classes defined (at least I think this is the case, comeone may 
correct me - conduct tests before going too far down the line).

You can place the CSS in the extra-css section of skinconf.xml

There is no provision to handle name collissions. You would have to 
resolve these in your stylesheets. The new views technology solves this 
problem, but that is development stuff so you may not want to use it.
