It does if you use the SkinChange cookbook recipe that is currently
online (http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/SkinChange).

$PubDirUrl still works as before, so you can continue to use it if you 
want.  But $SkinDirUrl is often nicer for any files that exist in the skin
directory -- i.e., instead of $PubDirUrl/skins/skin_name/something.css,
you can just do $SkinDirUrl/something.css.  This latter form has the 
advantage of working even if you later give the skin a different name 
(either by copying or renaming the skin's directory).
