Alter some settings in TWikiPreferences and TablePlugin to make DenxSkin look better

* Background color of non existing topic: ( default =cornsilk= or =#FFFFCE= )
   * Set NEWTOPICBGCOLOR = inherited
Set this to "inherited" to have a transparent background of the new topic.

* Font color of non existing topic: ( default =#0000FF= )
I choose red as a color for new topics.

* New Link Symbol
   * Set NEWTOPICLINKSYMBOL = <img src="/twiki/pub/TWiki/BlueSkin/tip.gif" border="0" width="16" height="16"/>
There is a small encircled star as a creation symbol for the new topic link. It is located in the pub directory.

* Set TABLEATTRIBUTES = tableborder="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="2" headerbg="#8CAAE6" headercolor="003399" databg="#8CAAE6, #EEEEEE"
Set the default attributes for tables in the TablePlugin

Finally switch on the DenxSkin in TWikiPreferences and enjoy.

* Set SKIN = DenxSkin


Note: You do not need to install anything on the browser to use this skin. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the skin on the server where TWiki is running.

All you have to do is to unzip the archive in the installation folder of your Wiki installation. There is no worry about overwriting other template files, as all template files end in .DenxSkin.tmpl. DenxSkin is now packaged correctly but I suggest you first test the archive to check the content structure before unpacking in a productive system.
