Public vs non public CSS classes

  • what class must absolutely exist and also to ensure we don't use non public classes in document content or in templates (non skin templates);
  • The private (internal) vs API (public) list of classes would allow to separate CSS classes in 2 categories :
    • the ones with an agreed behavior that all skins must define, and that application (extensions, etc.) developers can rely on. (like we do with hidden, buttonswrapper, clearfloats, etc.) -> those are APIs
    • the ones that are used to "make the skin work" and for which we allow ourselves to change their behavior, remove them, not define them in all skins, etc. -> those are private, and the extension developers must not rely on them.


  •  Structure on id, class? displayed alphabetical 
  •  Structure on general, layout, panels, etc?  
  •  Structure on which classes are used by which skins: colibri, toucan, all ?  
  •  We introduce all classes and ids generated by the templates or used in the actual skins?
