Hi all,

This is my first posting to this list.

I write user manuals with FrameMaker 6.0 under Windows XP
and produce them as PDF and, using WebWorks Publisher,
as MS HTML Help.

For optimum quality and minimum file size, I have set WinXP
to "Classic Style" and the two colors for the title bar to the same
color, to avoid the creation of gradients.

The downside of this is that screen captures don't look like
what most users see on their computer, which is usually set
to the standard WinXP theme.

I tried changing the title bar colors in the standard WinXP theme,
but this does not have any effect. Does anybody know a solution
to this dilemma?

Is there a WinXP theme which looks similar to the standard
theme, but does not have the gradient in the title bar?

Thank you in advance for your replies.
