Bill,

It gets the theme parts right from where I sit. The large fonts isn't 
part of a theme, it's another setting and even Microsoft itself doesn't 
support Large fonts fully. Try setting Large Fonts to 'Extra Large' and 
then close and open the Display properties window and you see it doesn't 
even recognize them. So, it's hard to subtract points from Rev when MS 
itself doesn't abide by particular appearance settings.

On all the themes I use including Royale, Windows Classic, Windows XP 
and a rouque Vista theme, Rev correctly sets the background color of new 
stacks.

I checked the following:

buttons
scrollbars
fields
option menu
pulldown menu
progress bar
check box
radio

they all assume the same theme.

-Chipp



best,

Chipp
