Hi testers!

Sumana has reminded me that this could be interesting to qa list, so I am
forwarding a question from wikitech-l.

I have a few ideas on how I would test a skin, but I will hold my opinion
until others have shared their thoughts. (If you are not familiar with
mediawiki skins, do not worry, neither am I.)

Thoughts? :)

Hi guys!

It seems that I've sent my question when everyone was at hackaton so
the message have been missed and overlooked. So, how do you test
skins? I imagine that it should be large page with all kind of markup,
TOC'es, tables, elements with applied mediawiki-specific CSS-classes.
So when I look at this page with my skin I can instantly see all the
mistakes in the skin.

Or there is no such thing and skins shouwld be tested in some other fashion?
