[Moin-user] How about a common.css file?

Hi there

According to my opinion the moderne theme needs more some "Lift up" for
to be more attractive and not only "practically".

You may could use a css framework like yaml, but others will say it
"sucks" and it's much cleaner to generate only css for thing ya need
(and not carry a bunch of useless/poor adapted css with your custom
theme). Using a yaml is just like to break a butterfly on a wheel (well
maybe read this
http://mondaybynoon.com/2007/08/27/please-do-not-use-css-frameworks/ ).

I think if somebody really want to change a theme, your not done with
changing some font sizes and colors. You maybe would start to modify the
basic theme with python and also add your own css class/ids and after
all add some custom css styles. so in the end you maybe would anyway
need a special common, screen and printer css. 

But If you still not want to override the standard css, you may add to
your moin-theme an extra href to your own custom common.css (after the
other css's) and done!

just my 5cents.
