Style and Main Template
The main site stylesheet (and alternates) need to be completed. The style should be simple and close to that of the original site. The main template must also be modified to help improve site navigation. The site quickbar needs to be 'cleaned' up and a brief site menu added (and possibly a deeper site menu as well for faster content access). The alternate stylesheets need to be checked and certain elements modified/added (such as bold1/bold2/bold3 styles).
The various stylesheets and the main template have been quickly edited (to give the site navbar). A few other tweaks can be done, mainly to the MonoBook (the default) and the custom MySkin (which approximates the original site style). Which one will be used as the site default can be determined later. Most of the style changes were lost when I upgraded to the 1.4 beta.
DO NOT USE THE NOSTALGIA STYLESHEET. I changed my skin to Nostalgia to see what it looked like and then I couldn't access any of the Special Pages, including the Preferences page to change my skin back to what it was. This seems to be an unresolved reported bug: http://bugzilla.wikipedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1856. For the time being, could the nonworking skins be disabled?
For the record, I managed to get out of the Nostalgia stylesheet by using a cached version of the Preferences page.
