Subject Re: Demo / Skins / CommandButton

Thanks for the reply.  I went back and read the thread.

I was particularly excited about the generated button images for an 
application I have where a good number of users are on the Mac. 
Skinning on the Mac does not work for buttons.  Steve Jobs thinks Aqua 
buttons look best regardless of whether they actually go with the rest 
of the skinned look.

Thanks for the answer though.
