Simplistic light gray redesign of the Wikipedia site.

This removes much of the editing links and options as well as the sign on stuff. Basically it's for people who just view articles.

I'll try to keep this updated and probably make some different themes in the future. I'm open to suggestions and let me know what you think.

*** UPD 062710 - Removed white bar across the top caused by a recent update to mediawiki's tag id naming scheme.
*** UPD 121310 - Updated for international support. Should now work for all languages.
*** UPD 062212 - Updated for minor CSS inconsistencies featured in Firefox 16 Alpha build. I will upload the previous script as
*** UPD 030413 (and forward) - See Additional Info section.

More info
*** UPD 030413 - No code changes this round. Apart from a widening distortion of certain pages that feature very wide (think panoramic) images, I haven't noticed anything significant since the last update. I'm not planning to get into the code again unless I get at least 3 'minor' enhancement requests or if a version related issue pops up. Feedback welcome! If you have a req for change, feel free to pm me or post it publicly.
