ASP.Net 2.0 Gridview and ItemRow Theming

Not really a problem, the setting the named skin for a gridview.  

I've got three types of Item rows, one aligned Left, one Right and one center.

Is there a way using the Theme to set these??

I"ve got the theme for the grid already and it works, but Can't find a way to set the ItemRow Style.
<asp:gridview runat="server" skinID="GridView"
            AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True" AutoGenerateColumns="False"  EnableSortingAndPagingCallbacks="True" PageSize="20">
        <RowStyle BackColor="#FFFBD6" Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="8pt" ForeColor="Black" Wrap="False" />
        <HeaderStyle BackColor="Maroon" Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="8pt" ForeColor="White" />
        <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" Wrap="False" />
        <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="LightGray" Font-Bold="True" />
        <FooterStyle BackColor="Maroon" BorderColor="White" Font-Bold="True" Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="8pt" />

You can really only skin at the asp:gridview level. That said, I had a similar issue. I setup multiple skins for gridviews and associated gridviews to the appropriate skin using the SkinID attribute on the gridview tag. Then, for each skin, I associated an exclit CSS class to each gridview I was using. Then, in my CSS, I changed style for each of my rows accordingly.


in my .skin file I might have the following:
  <asp:GridView SkinID="MainTable" AlternatingStyle-CssClass="AltRow" HeaderStyle-CssClass="HeaderRow"  />
  <asp:GridView SkinID="OtherTable" AlternatingStyle-CssClass="AltRow" HeaderStyle-CssClass="HeaderRow"  />

in my .css file I might have the following:
  table.MainTable tr.AltRow
    background-color: #0f0f0f;

  table.OtherTable tr.AltRow
    background-color: #f9f9f9;

and in my aspx file, I create the asp:GridView control using the appropriate skin id
