%appdata% goes to the currently logged in user's application data (it's faster to type). the folder would be %appdata%GoogleGoogle Talkthemesuserchat

The CSS files are kinda weird to play around with... e.g. apparently you need to define font settings in dozens of places so they will be used. Also, the settings theme preview doesn't reflect the actual chat theme once chosen. I tried to create a "mIRC" theme but some colors couldn't be overriden and in the end the chat didn't scroll anymore... oh well.

I've been a member of CustomizeTalk since the beginning. I used to visit it more often when I had their RSS feed on my ig homepage, but I haven't visited in a while.

Hi Anthony!

> It uses the internet explorer rendering engine

Yeah well but how do we see the HTML? Even in IE youd don't need to define fonts in multiple places...

I am assuming this is the way it works (Assuming)

I am assuming google has a master stylesheet that has some code that looks like this:

[css]
* {
font:12pt arial;
color:#000;
background-color:#fff;
}
[/css]
