    I do not know how to make them, but to use them, you will have to download the vistaglazz patch, because vista is protected against custom themes. Also, the file type is .theme. I made a word document of a leopard style theme i have, by opening it with notepad, in case it helps.

    Well what would you suggest I save the text as? If you guys want, I could just post the theme in its original format.
