Agreed completely the browsers are inconsistent when applying the 
outline to a TR, and of course not even IE10 supports outline-offset.

Agreed - it's not ideal, but I think it's the best option given browser 
implementation of outline.  Personally, I think a different background 
color would be better than an italicized font.

Good catch, it looks like CSS could use either #messagelist or 
.messagelist both of which are shared across skins.  Or records-table 
could be applied to the table in the default skin.
