The Common.css is only the part where you define the background color
depending on the category you use. I.e. you specify that
.cat-Timecode-future results in a background: #fff7e7

That part is entirely clear to me, I use Common.css extensively.

But in my mediawiki installation (1.13.3, and neither on mediawiki.org
which uses 1.16alpha), there are no cat-[category name] classes being
output. I see a ns-xxx and a page-yyy part in the body class, but no
cat-zzz part. That is what confuses me.
