Hi

For editing CSS style sheets, use the "CSS Editor" option in NVU.

For editing VB forms (or .NET), perhaps MonoDevelop.

Greetings!

If you would kindly answer Tink's polite Q, we might be able to help you. In my experience, when he asks for more info., it's justified.

Also, be sure that the license from the original "visual style" allows extraction and reuse of images.

oops, sry....

a .msstyle is the file type for microsoft visual styles, they are what microsoft windows uses to theme the desktop......such as the luna visual style that comes with microsoft windows....i don't know how to explain it further......baiscally it themes the window borders, the taskbar and the colours that are used.

not that it really helps my explation, but to use extra visual styles, windows require a patch to be applied (which in case ur interested, can be done through this http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=140707 program here)

You can download such themes from deviantart.com which is where i got the one i want to extract
the one in my example is from here

also, i don't really know about a license for it.......
