Very nice. I really like this theme. Particular the Citrus one.
Only one question, why didn't you include all of these wba files as substyles in one skin?
And there is a font installing feature in WB that automatically installs fonts included with skins.

Fabulous skin!
One note, however. I originally had "smooth edges of screen fonts" set to 'Standard', and the font used appeared very jaggy. I changed it to 'ClearType', and it suddenly looks 100 times better. I'm sure most people use ClearType, so it won't be an issue, but for those who don't: it helps a lot to have it on for this skin.

This is because the font is one of the new fonts Microsoft designed for Windows Vista and is optimized for ClearType.
Anyone interested in typography should drop by their blog http://blogs.msdn.com/fontblog/default.aspx. Loads of good information there.

isomerboy: That button in the titlebar is not an issue with the skin. It is Windows Media Player which doesn't play by the normal rules for windows apps.

In my Opinion, It's not correct.
Cause when I loaded StealthOS, the button was not appeared.

I love the skin, BUT a few simple notes.
Application grids will no longer display the lines.
Drop down combo button matches to the text input boxes.

In the original version, the page received a different subtle tint, depending upon the substyle chosen. In this version, every substyle has an identical subtle tint (aqua, turquoise, blue-green, whatever you want to call it.) What was your thinking behind this change? A change in your taste, a change in skin fashion? On the surface at least, the change seems like a change backwards (as opposed to being a "plus" version).

[I'm not optimisitic about getting a response. Do skin artists avoid explaining their rationales and aesthetic theories because they are safeguarding trade secrets, because they are unreflective, because they are above talking to non-skinners, or what?)

If you go Display:Appearance:Advance:Other Advanced Controls, and click on the white page area, you can set the coloration for the page. Using Windowblinds, this color is set by the skin. In Skin Studio, it can be set by going to the "Classic Colors" tab and clicking on the "Background page" in the preview. You set this value differenly in Alysseum and Alysseum Plus. In Alysseum, the value is a faint version of the substyle's basic hue. In Plus, the value is a faint aqua.

Now do you know what I'm talking about?

The desktop Color... you can set that however you want, I don't see what the issue is...

Great skin, but...
I have no shadows under menus... Is it a bug? Or is something wrong with my WB?

Thank you for a great skin. I also find the user pic panel an eyesore, whoever in microsoft came up with that brain child obviously has an identity problem.

This is now my default skin. I'm doing a modified version of Charger substyle. Smaller scrollbars, darker fonts, menus with shadows... and of course a litestep theme.

Thank you Gabriel for this awesome skin.
