Thank you for your reply.

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?

try making your two color options of your XP gradient both the same color.

I am on XP at home and on 200 at work - where I am at right now - and that
seems like it might work for you, especially if you make both colors thew
standard XP blue, achieving a more standard XP visual.

let me know what you get...
