Hi Phil

I am working with both Jetspeed and IBM WPS. I am investigating using 
Jetspeed for development, and only going to WPS for integration test and 
production. Main reason is that WPS is a very unfriendly developer 
environment. (Slow to install, needs a really capable machine, takes forever 
to start in debug mode and runs like a dog when debugging, stuck on Java 

Jetspeed themes are Velocity templates, but not at all difficult to build. 
They are described as "decorators" in the documentation. There is an 
experimental JSP decorator in the latest release, but I have not tried it.

Generally you can copy an existing Jetspeed theme and replace the images & 
css files with the ones from WPS. Then edit the header.vm and footer.vm 
files using the WPS JSPs as a guide. For simple jobs, the single column 
layout is usually OK so you don't need to build a special layout.
