Released at last  ;) Very nice work...

[criticism]I think the buttons are nice and simple, but a bit rough around the corners and on some text. Also, some of the text is not centered in the buttons and some are... eg, Go Up isn't and Print is...  ...thats all!!![/criticism]

More criticism/advice (sorry man :D)

1. You might want to really make the theme xhtml/css valid. Or else just remove the two buttons at the bottom, because your page is not Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

2. The fonts on your buttons just don't fit the rest of the look. I can't tell which font it is (Trebuchet MS?), but when I first looked at it it looked like comic sans :-[ (Which obviously does not fit the look)

3. The forum title is still in the Georgia font. This can and should be modified for your theme. It's the same story as on point 2, it just doesn't fit the look.

But still, it looks good :D

I think it would look better if you select "enable inline links" in the theme options. But a very nice theme :)

The choice of font for the buttons is something I may change( the one I use now is called Informatic)....a more futuristic font may suit it better.

But I have changed the Georgia style :) and removed the css and xhtml validations - until I changed it to be valid.

I think it would look better if you select "enable inline links" in the theme options. But a very nice theme :)

Yes, that will be more in line with the style..I will probably change it on the site.
