I agree with the problem that CSS is hardcoded into JSP files and Java files. The current templating system is not self containing (in the sense of an self explaining abstraction layer): A designer has to dig into JSP and Java files to get the big picture. Surely he can use something like Firefox Webdeveloper as an easy solution to get the names - still, it is hard to tell a designer "you don't need to know Java" - because it is impossible to change the all the css class names.
What would be nice is if you could give a designer the templates and css and tell him: that's all you need. The property file is an Idea, but I think it is one more thing a designer needs to touch. What if there would only be the JSP template files and the CSS files that need to be changed? Therefore all the CSS class names should be overwritable in the JSP template files: Would it be viable to overwrite the default CSS names in the JSPTags itself (as parameters of the tags)?
Someone (Lost in the depth of the mailinglist, was it Dirk Frederick?) had this Idea of using available templates of existing CMS systems. You could have a drupal template that overwrites the default CSS names in the JSP tags and then uses the CSS file of drupal for the particular skins.
I can't judge if it is that easy, because I am not a designer. Just an Idea.
