What is the procedure for authoring a FP98 theme from scratch?  Ive been through the Frontpage98 help system, and cannot find anything that explains developing a new theme (they go into detail on applying, changing, and removing).

Get out your FP CD and load 'er up! You're gonna love this!

"Using the FrontPage Theme Designer, you can easily modify and
customize the appearance and properties of the professionally
designed themes that FrontPage 98 ships with.

To install the Theme Designer, exit the FrontPage Explorer and
the FrontPage Editor (if they are running) and run TDSETUP.EXE
from the \SDK\THEMES\DESIGNER folder on the FrontPage 98 CD-ROM.

After Setup has completed, launch the FrontPage Explorer. To
start the Theme Designer, choose the Show Theme Designer command
on the FrontPage Explorer's Tools menu."
      snagged from the readme.txt file in CD\SDK\THEMES\DESIGNER


Don't forget to read that whole readme.txt file and check also the Themes folder above it. There you'll find another important readme.txt file and two .xls files: FPThemes and ThemeCompiler...


You can work from scratch, or you can load an existing theme and then modify it to the max... FP will not allow you to overwrite existing themes... Just save your custom theme to a new name!

This is really a great tool!
