I am not aware that there would be any code out there that would
allow to do "skinning" of a XForms application, at least no sup-
port is built into XForms (and it would probably be rather dif-
ficult to achieve that given the way it was written, long before
anybody came up with the idea of "skinning"), sorry.

The only thing you can do is change the border width using the
'-bw' option, and, of course, some aspects can be configured
via resource settings.

But perhaps someone else has some god ideas how something like
"skinning" can be achieved...
