Subject RE: Can't control the skin for my page

Hi Thorsten,

I don't have a trinidad-skins.xml file, because I am simply trying to use the "minimal" skin
by specifying it in trinidad-config.xml - hope this is the correct usage.

As far as getting the minimal skin to work, I have solved the problem. I realized that the
Trinidad demo was wrapping the pages in <tr:document> tags, whereas my page still used
<html>, <head> and <body> tags. As soon as I replaced these with <tr:document>,
the minimal skin started working. This is definitely part of my learning curve for Trinidad,
I am finding things the hard way. A suggestion would be to start adding such gotchas to the

Hi Naresh!

Could you please provide the contents of your trinidad-skins.xml file?

I assume you don't see the browser requesting css files all the time because the browser is
caching them.

Betreff: Can't control the skin for my page

I have two questions about how to use skins:

1) If my page contains a link to a css file, skins are neither requested
nor used. Is it expected not to use CSS links when using skins?

2) Now I have deleted the link to my css file, but I don't seem to be
able to control what skin is used on the page. I added
"<skin-family>minimal</skin-family>" to my trinidad-config, but the page
is showing up purple (probably picking up the purple skin). Here's the
access log when I try to access the page: - - [19/Sep/2006:09:57:48 -0400] "GET
/measure/pages/measure-home.jsf HTTP/1.1" 200 19850 - - [19/Sep/2006:09:57:48 -0400] "GET
/measure/adf/jsLibs/Common11-m7.js HTTP/1.1" 304 - - - [19/Sep/2006:09:57:48 -0400] "GET
/measure/adf/images/t.gif HTTP/1.1" 304 - 

It doesn't look like a skin is being requested.

Can someone help me understand what's going on?
