    it is pretty easy, I would just take one of the existing skins and change the values. The main thing to remember that all the position and size values are percentage of the parent (like frodo mentioned). To figure out the percentage, just take the position (say 35) and divide by the total (800) and multiply by 100 (for percent) = 4.375

    The colors are a bit wonky, but with the windows calculator you can figure out the values that you want to use.

    Select view->scientific on the calculator. get the hex value for your color (BF7C00) and select hex on the calculator. then input it in this order (007CBF) then select dec, and that is the color value you want to use.

    I made one...Frodo has it...but as you can tell he's been too busy to review it. I don't know how good it is but it's better than nothing.
