Allow us to examine what happens when one requests
index.php?title=%E9%A6%96%E9%A0%81&useskin=simple
or several of the other skins.

These other pages are pulled in by one's browser:
skins/simple/main.css?42b
skins/common/commonPrint.css?42b
skins/simple/handheld.css?42b
skins/common/wikibits.js?42b
index.php?title=-&action=raw&smaxage=0&gen=js
index.php?title=%E5%AA%92%E9%AB%94%E7%B6%AD%E5%9F%BA:Common.css&usemsgcache=yes&action=raw&ctype=text/css&smaxage=18000
index.php?title=%E5%AA%92%E9%AB%94%E7%B6%AD%E5%9F%BA:Simple.css&usemsgcache=yes&action=raw&ctype=text/css&smaxage=18000
index.php?title=-&action=raw&gen=css&maxage=18000&smaxage=0
skins/common/images/poweredby_mediawiki_88x31.png
skins/common/images/tzbus.png

However, the images don't end up getting displayed.
So don't cause the browser to go downloading images that you don't
plan to display.

At least cologneblue is OK.

If your browser isn't clever enough to figure out which items it needs, that's
its fault.  We probably can't do anything about that unless we want to not offer
those items.  If you have *specific* suggestions for how to improve the user
experience, please share them.
