Great work, very nice, Z71! Glad to see all modules skinned as well.

I hope you don't mind, just a couple of suggestions:

Not sure why you made the menus fixed width at 175 pixels (Menu Button Skinning Preferences), specially because you specified the Left and Right Tile sections for the menu bitmaps. It would be nice if you set the maximum button width to 300 instead of 175 (I already tried it and it's the only change required).

The mouseover tasklist bitmap (tasksm.bmp) is the same as the normal tasklist bitmap (tasks.bmp). This means that if an application flashes its tasklist button to draw attention the flashing won't be visible. A slightly darker shade for the mouseover tasklist button would probably do the trick here.

And being really picky (sorry!): in WorkShelf, the in-shelf meters (CPU, Net, etc...) still use the default green on black colors... If you changed those default colors to the same shade of blue used in the rest of the shelf the in-shelf meters would probably blend in with the rest of the theme a lot better.

Again, I hope you don't mind the constructive criticism, it really is a great theme! Soft and pretty.

Keep up the good work!

Jcrabbit, I really don't mind the suggestions. Atleast they're construtive. As you can tell I haven't done one of these in a real long while. It's people like you that help (us) skinners to see thing that react differently on other peoples machines.
The menu margin, set at 175, is just my preference.
The tasksm.bmp is missing from the theme, this is something I will have to add.
As for the meters, didn't know this. That's something I will have to look at closely and change.
I'll have an update soon.

Thanks for the insite.

Phew! Got me worried for a moment there when you put your theme offline in order to update it - I hadn't seen your reply yet.

Anyway, thanks for the update! Theme is just perfect now.
