I have been using the adapt skin for several years now and it works great.


I use this for the back-end development site for my editors of
www.wordsrus.info which is based on a responsive skin called brownie.

The two work well together.

The wysiwyg editor is another matter however.  As a coder who still loves
to muck around in BASIC to write my javascript for the "pretty pages", I
find the WYSIWYG adds a lot of overhead.
