[geeklog-devel] Simon or a replace of?

I've been using some of the CSS standards that Simon and I came up with and 
have been refining them as part of my plugin development over the past year. 
More specifically, I have published the recommendations to the 
geeklog-modules list a few weeks back.

My present work on a new Forum Plugin version will in fact be able to use 
one set of templates and just use the CSS for themeing. This will work 
unless someone needs to modify a template file for one theme only. But most 
sites actually only use one theme.

Simon has a much larger list of CSS declaration standards that were being 
developed as part of a new GL Theme project we were working on. This can be 
the base of the discussions and planning for GL2. Simon wanted to out 
toghether a design guide I believe.

If you could send those past notes and/or supporting code that would be
great.  One noteworthy design decision is that MVCnPHP-based plugins
will allow plugins to keep their templates within their own directory
structure.  Use of MVCnPHP is optional, but strongly encouraged.  We'll
still need to figure out how to get around non-MVC/procedural plugins.

Hopefully as much as possible.
