    Building themes can be tough. But this helped me understand things. It is an online wp theme generator, and I like it because it really helped me understand the different parts of the style sheet.

    er, if you seriously want to use theme generator and such programs, you should consider Artisteer.

    But nothing beats good ol' notepad++, plus knowledge of xHTML and PHP.
