Hm... I am not sure whether I understand what you mean.
I have already tried changing the WinXP Classic theme
to make it look like WinXP Standard. But you cannot change
it that much. You can avoid the gradient on the title bar, ok.
But you'll never get those blue frames around the windows
for example, or the red button with the X at the right end of the
title bar... The appearance is still too far away from XP Standard.
Perphaps there is a special XP theme which looks just like
XP, but without the gradient in the title bar?
