<li>Copy one of the existing theme folders to one with a new name. I recommend

- <p>Note that all these steps are optional - you can make a radically different

<p>Note also that Moodle upgrades <em>may</em> break themes slightly, so check
the release notes carefully if you are using a custom theme.</p>
- <p>In particular, Moodle 2.0 will have a completely new display system, probably
- based on XSL transformations of XML output from Moodle. It is likely that
- the themes for this will be a completely different format, but the advantage
- will be a much higher possible degree of customisation (including moving
- elements around the page).</p>

might want to use, please post your zip file on the themes forum!<br />
