that's cool indeed .

I already did that for trac.css as it contains generic . JFTR the
missing piece in the puzzle is that specific modules (e.g. wiki) add
their own rules & CSS classes . In theory , if Trac

1- didn't provide generic rules (e.g. p { /* whatever */ } ) and ...
2- use different CSS classes

... then it would be possible to obtain expected result relatively quick . So

- In order to work around #1 above I suggested to replace trac.css
with bootstrap.css
- The links you provided before might help to achieve #2

I'll provide more feedback later today .

... agreed . I just mentioned the three options to get feedback from
you and be in synch
Thnx for your reply .
