I've upload the work I've done recently on allowing bugzilla to support
The work is in http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=69654
However I have to warn any people wanting to play with it is that since
this patch is based on a version of bugzilla that has significant
patches applied, this patch needs a few other patches before being
applied on bugzilla 2.17.6..
You can see a demo of a CSS based interface at
(anybody can create accounts)
It has had the objective of been CSS2 Standard complient but has been
mainly designed on Mozilla 1.4+ but should show up correctly (but not
perfectly) in Internet Explorer.. Other browsers might have some
problems as it hasn't been tested..
If you go in the preferences section in 'User Interface Style' you can
switch the interface to 'nostyle' and there is no CSS anymore and should
show a (horrible) interface that should work on non advanced browsers
and mobile devices.. This demonstrates skinning by making it possible to
have multiple skins at the same time on one bugzilla installation..
