Great article about themes in Office 2007

I was reading Jensen Harris' blog, and saw that he posted an article written by Howard Cooperstein about the new Theme support in Office 2007.

What I found interesting was the limitations they had put on themes. Allowing only two slots for fonts in a Theme is a great solution, the same goes to the way they're handling colors etc.

I'm currently working on something similar in PDF, and the need for some limitations regarding defining templates was a great input for me and my team.

Hi Christian,
Just saw your blog post. Great to hear Office Themes offered some inspiriation. Check out the Beta2 that's available for download now. We've put in a lot of refinements into the 20 available themes and UI. We're hoping people will be cranking out great looking docs without even thinking about it. :-)
