Doesn't support anything above Normal font sizes.

No go for me.

sorry for that but the problem to make suport for the three font sizes is that you have to make three vs one for each font size and doing that without stylebuilder is really a pain because you have to insert in the msstyle every new resource for the others styles and they are a couple of hundreds. Well thanks for taking your time to give it a look and maybe in the future I buy stylebuilder and give a revamp to all my vs.

Wow - you're doing this *without* StyleBuilder? That's amazing! I'm sorry I can't use your style but the fact that you're doing this in the manner that you are makes this all the more excellent.

Well done.

That's better! I still had to change menu font color to gray though...I must be blind.

BTW: With the Firefox default theme, you won't be able to see any of the fonts in the toolbar, but the Firefox "Zune" theme looks amazing with this VS.

I really like this theme! The dark colors work nicely together. The only issue I have is the drop-down menu text. It's kind of difficult to read (I can read it, it's just a strain), even though it is seen better on rollover. Perhaps lighten that text up a bit and it'll be spectacular!

@ VStyler: I disagree. The text is highlighted on mouseover, and I have no problem whatsoever reading it.

He is talking about the menu bar text that is black on black went the windows is on no focus so is a little uncorfortable. I am going to fix that when I have a litle time.

Thanks jackie.

Unusable due to text\menu\button colors. [black on black]

Otherwise nice idea.

Man I am honored that you stop by man. I dont't use the menu bar on my pc so I don't see the black on black thing but I think you have a point there so in the next update I make the text more gray there.

I like how you skinned a lot of stuff to go with your skin but let me give you a couple of tips to make your VS really spectacular. Use a different font such as Segoe UI; it will look much better, trust me. Clean up those lines on your skins edges and curves... If you give it that nice smooth look on the edges and have those gradients perfectly placed, your skins is basically gonna jump onto people computers without any hesitation. Thanks for the VS man and keep up the good work! :)

I think you talk about the others skins and the shellstyle. I think the vs is very smooth in the curves of the windows and start menu but I could be wrong. Thanks for the advise and the toolbar for styler and the sshutdown skin are not finished so I will update the vs went I have a little time.
