I've found some nice resources on creating Mozilla skins and extensions, but none for Phoenix. Can somebody show me any resources for skinning and making extensions specifically for Phoenix? I am now seriously thinking about makinga Phoenix skin during my spare time and an extension once I learn programming.

Anyway, here are my favorite resource so far:

The Phoenix skin is nearly identical to a Mozilla skin. The easiest way to make one is to download someone else's Phoenix skin and replace the pieces as you go. That's how I learned. There's too much to start from scratch.

Phoenix extensions are also very close to Mozilla extensions. What you really need is a site that shows the differences.

http://www.techtv.com/screensavers/howt ... 01,00.html is just a rehash of something from mozilla.org

http://www.mozillazine.org/weblogs/hyat ... sions.html - for making extensions work on both Moz and Px, so should illustrate differences as well
