The silver theme is in the style sheet but is one of the options added as a layout. Open the Design Libarary and search for the Theme Stylesheets, inside this you will find the Style for Silver Theme Layout.

Perfect! Found it!

Just cant get "border-radius" to function!

EDIT: Border radius does not show in Actinic, but does in browser.

Thankyou.

Actinic built in browser is an old version of IE, I always use an external browser to check web pages.

Do you know if you can create gradients using CSS, without images?

With CSS3 you can... have a look at this site where you can generate some cut-n-paste CSS3 code for gradients. http://gradients.glrzad.com/
It won't work in all browsers, but most up to date browsers will show your gradients fine, just have a solid colour fallback for older browsers (like IE8) that don't understand CSS3.

Steve, reading the comment on that URL there seems to be a debate about wether CSS3 is a good idea, bearing in mind the browsers that may be incompatible do you think it will hurt the SEO for the site?

EDIT: Also found this great CSS3 reference page

In version 11 you can set the internal preview to use any version of IE, up to the latest one you have installed. The setting is in Site Options | Layout | Site | Embedded Preview Compatibility.

Search engines don't render CSS styles, so it won't affect your SEO. However be aware that CSS3 is still something of a work in progress and not every element is fully or consistently supported by all browsers.

Set it to IE8, the default IE9 setting that Actinic setup means the cart and checkout pages are totally messed up and you have no idea how they look.

Using CSS3 won't hurt your SEO or your visitors, as long as you take care to use fallbacks for browsers that don't understand CSS3, and don't use CSS3 features for your basic page layout.
New CSS3 introductions such as rounded corners, box shadow, text shadow and gradients are by and large fine and reasonably well supported by FF/Chrome/Safari/Opera/IE9/IE10(when it arrives...).
Bruce's comments are spot on, and I would agree with Lee about IE9 in Actinic preview mode trashing the checkout pages.

This is correct. CSS3 is actually designed as a "rolling implementation." What that means is they are releasing it in dribs and drabs, piecemeal fashion, as the various properties are finalized. I have mixed thoughts about that, but since it's been in the making for so many years I guess it's better to get it a little at a time than to wait years more for the whole body of work.
