2. How to build the VLC Skin Editor
====================================================================
If you just want to compile the sources, simply run ant inside the
directory where build.xml is located. (The root of the trunk)
If you want to build packaged versions, use ant with one of the
following targets as argument:
  package-win32
    ZIP package for Windows
  package-unix
    TAR-GZIP package for Linux/Unix
  package-update
    ZIP update package for the update system
  installer-win32

3. How to run the VLC Skin Editor
====================================================================
You have to run VLCSkinEditor.jar (via java or VLCSkinEditor.exe)
inside the same directory as the lang directory is. On Windows you
also have to make sure that ICE_JNIRegistry.dll is in the same
directory, otherwise detection of where VLC is installed does not 
work.

When ran for the first time the program will create a config file
named "VLCSkinEditor.cfg". It is located in the user directory.
On Windows its stored in "%appdata%\VLC" on Linux in "~/.vlc/".
