Yes I did that. ploneCustom.css only includes a link to latexwiki.css

That it is true. The "plone" skin is just what you sent me a few
weeks ago about what Simon set up on ubuntulinux.org.

Unfortunately that page and several other things on the zwiki.org
site (even issuetracker) seems to be broken right now :( IOError ):
So I can't review exactly what I did.

As I understand it, it is supposed to look just like the standard
ZWiki (i.e. stand alone) skin except that the wiki page itself is
really located inside Plone. Since LatexWiki works as an extension
of the ZWiki stand alone standard skin (is that right?), I thought
that this might work for LatexWiki as well. And it almost does.
So far, all I can see that is different is the alignment of images.

As I recall, among other things the changes described by Simon
involved changing the skin search order. As you said ploneCustom.css
is not involved. Maybe the latexwiki.css has to be located somewhere
else than in the root of the Plone site folder? Maybe something in
the ZWiki "standard" skins have to refer to latexwiki.css?

Another weird thing that you might also have already noticed
is that images that are inlined via $...$ do not seem to be
transparent but $$...$$ are
transparent. This seems to be a problem both on the plainwiki
as well as under plone.
