Just a reminder that part of the reason behind the simplicity of
PmWiki's default skin is to make it easier for people (who may not
have a lot of HTML/CSS knowledge) to see how/where to customize it.

This isn't to say that I'm voting in favor of the current skin,
just that "how it looks" isn't the _only_ criterion.

I'd be fine with a high-quality and slightly complex skin if
we also have a good "how to customize your own skin" tutorial
to go along with it.
