Ah yes, LeanSkin is loading its stylesheets after the <!--HeaderText-->
(now <!--HTMLHeader-->) directive.  That makes it difficult for
an administrator to override LeanSkin's settings.

The recommended approach is for a skin to place its .css properties
prior to the <!--HeaderText--> directive.  There are reasons why a
skin will choose to put them after, but the downside is that
it then makes it difficult for a site administrator to override the
skin's style settings.
