Could someone explain to me (or supply a URL) the relationship between
server builds/versions and the skins that are available either in the
default install or as downloads?

I hope that examples like the Fishbone interface just brush the surface of
what can be done through skinning. I'm thinking that there's a lot more
that could be done in JavaScript (even if not completely cross-browser
compatible - I'll admit that I'd _happily_ take a more powerful interface
that I can run on my browser(s) of choice, whether or not anyone else can
run the same). But it's unclear what exactly is implemented as atomic
pieces of the SlimServer and what is being done in the skins.

Hi JJ,

Check out the Help section in the SlimServer web interface, under
Technical Information, then click on Skin Creation.

There's a lot of detail there...
