Sure, its just text. The only matter of concern is getting the properties
correctly declared and ensuring the file is located in the App_Themes folder
when deployed. And really, when all is said and done the same applies to all
other file types used for ASP.NET development as Visual Studio can be
understood to be as simplistic as a "convenience store."

Sure it can. You can even do it with Notepad.

You know, Clinton, thats what I thought, but can't seem to get .skin
to be recognized even when I create it with a text file. I agree, I
have a free HTML editor that doesn't recognize .aspx files so I just
create them as text with the .aspx extension. But, for some reason,
this isn't working with the .skin. I'll keep trying.

Can't do it Juan. Not in notepad or anywhere. Unlike a .aspx file
which is easily saved as filename.aspx, the .skin file always come
out as filename.skin.txt. It will not save as filename.skin. I
was able to open an example .skin file but it shows up as an "unknown"
type in my text/web editor applications, so I can't edit it. Are you
sure these .skin files don't need a special app to create?

If that's the case, rename it using Windows Explorer.

Also, Notepad gives you the option to "Save" as .txt or *Save As* "All Files".
If you choose to save it as "All Files", the .txt extension won't be added.

I think Notepad++ will work per Clinton Gallagher. I didn't know
about this upgrade to Notepad++. I know this sounds basic, but I have
been focusing most of my training on bare bones development in order
to thoroughly learn core concepts (HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT, etc. etc.).
Thanks for the help on so basic an issue. Bit embarassing. Thanks
for the help, Juan.

You'll also be even more productive if you search the web to learn how to
replace Notepad as the default text editor with Notepad++. This is a bit
tricky so be prepared to do some work to learn how its done.
