The URL of the skins directory. This is where MediaWiki tells the browser to get the styles from. This settings became less important or - depending on setup and the skin used - it even became useless for MediaWiki 1.17+, where styles are generally loaded through ResourceLoader modules.
$wgStylePathonly controls where the browser gets the styles from, not where MediaWiki looks for the style files.
