In *some* cases the failure is more to do with the markup used on the 
skin pages rather than the skin itself. For example, Blix 'fails' to 
validate because of some attributes used on the Blix skin page, rather 
than there being a problem with the skin itself.

This can also be fixed, by moving to "transitional" rather than strict, 
although I'm not really sure what that accomplishes.
