That would require a bit more work on cross-browser compatibility, but
yes, I agree we should make an effort to improve the default skin.
Just CSS can make it so much prettier :)

They are CSS3. The images used in the skin are icons for the
wikiaction and wikimessage areas, and backgrounds for header, footer,
and textareas.

If you have the time to do a more in deep testing, I'll be very happy
to listen to any suggestion :) The sidebar menu alignment needs more
care, it was done in a rush.

We could make a contest for the new pmwiki's default skin, don't you think?

Thanks, br,
