Yep, that's exactly how I wanted it.

Ok, I apologize for monopolizing your time, but I am still having trouble. I've followed the directions, and when it didn't work, I've went through every iteration I could think of, but nothing is working as I had hoped. I'm sure I'm missing a step, or have setup an incorrect configuration.
I have the following directory and file structure:
I run TexturePacker on the "From" directory, and the texture file "Textures.xbt" appears in my "C:\DATA\TexturePacker\To" directory. I rename it to "Test.xbt", drop it into the "Media" folder of my XBMC Addons for your skin, and select it from inside XBMC as the theme to use. All of the icons I see are the default (white) ones. I have confirmed that I do NOT have the 'use your own icons' tab set, I am using the OLD file naming conventions, and that I'm using the directory path you have mentioned (i.e. \media\homeicons)
I have tested the above with the new names (before you confirmed the old names), and using different directory structures, if that was a typo. I've used \extras\homeicons, \extras\customicons, \media\homeicons, \media\customicons, just \homeicons, and just \customicons, to no avail.
I know I'm missing something. If you could confirm what it is I should be doing - or not doing - I would really appreciate it!

It should be run on the media folder.

Worked a charm, sir. Thank you kindly!

I'm not sure if this is working or not, or if I'm looking at the right thing...
I have the above set to white, and other tags set to a yellow colour. However, when I look in my TV Shows and drill down to the episode view, the title and broadcast date are yellow, and the plot information is a shaded version of the same yellow. Am I doing something wrong?

They're only for the Episode viewtype not specifically episodes.

Ok - but in every view except "Landscape", I get the title in yellow, and the text in white. If you could tell me the tag I need to change to make it white, I'd be happy!

If there's a setting I can change (I can't find it) to make the landscape episode information different, that's the last thing I need before I can upload the colour XML and the theme XBT files. I'm all done, and ready to release the theme otherwise.

Wow. I did not see that coming. (Thanks!)
