The generated web pages simply don't have a LINK tag to load the default simple.css anymore.

Thank you.

I see the same using the modern skin on (all) Wikimedia wikis. Modern.css and common.css are not loaded. This breaks infoboxes and other customised CSS.

just adding two exemplary links here to make sure you note the impact: (German Wikipedia's main page) (random article with infobox and other stuff that isn't rendered)
… lots of grumbling all around especially by 'modern' users

Sorry, I forgot to update those two skins for the new SkinTemplate CSS handling. :(

r38139 fixed this for Modern...

r38143 fixed Simple.

Note there's lots of general weirdness with Modern, as it doesn't use the same IDs and classes as everything else; it should get a major overhaul at some point.

Plus final tweak to Modern in r38146, r38147...

This change breaks the layout of flagged revisions (see We turned off the box for most cases, but you can see there that in particular infoboxes get real problems.

Comment #6 seems to be unrelated; screenshot is of MonoBook skin. If a problem persists, please provide more info on a dedicated bug.
