in thread web-based application or desktop application?

Some GUI programs do go out of their way to look different, and offer the user a way to change the look as they see fit. In particular, MP3/Media players tend to do this a lot.

I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.

    I've worked at a place that provided "skins" for their web app. It was actually quite simple. *shrugs* Granted, the skin had to be stored server-side, but that's because HTML doesn't provide an easy way to choose images on the client machine.

    Please remember that I'm crufty and crochety. All opinions are purely mine and all code is untested, unless otherwise specified.

      Web "skins" can be implemented much better by using an all CSS design. The HTML doesn't have to change, only the CSS. Here is a site with tons of examples:
      CSS Zen Garden

      All the designs all use exactly the same HTML file only the CSS and images called by the CSS change.
