Thanks for the reply! Yes, I enjoy designing skins but reserve this method for my personal use as posting these types of skins on PmWiki.org would require people to create new pages.

I searched for MouseSkin on pmwiki.org but couldn't find it. Was a page for this skin never created?

It's sometimes a wee bit arcane (as the example with the menu you just posted prior) but it's not really hard to work with. Feel free to check MouseSkin if you want for examples, but also rolling your own is quite fun and instructive.
