Default VB: Ch5 P157 Try It Out Applying Themes

Everything's going well in this exercise until step 9. It's impossible to set the SkinID for the inserted Label control as it's greyed out! However, if I change to Source view, modify the code, switch back to Design view and examine the Properties, the SkinID is no longer greyed out and set correctly.

Q1 Why should a simple property like this be greyed out?

At the end of the exercise, I ran the site and some debugging was required. I eradicated a couple of typos in the web.sitemap, and set the blue theme for Page 1, but I have an effect in the TreeView control using the Red theme that I can't explain. Page 2 is shown a lighter colour compared to Page 1, whereas in the Blue theme Page 2 in the TreeView is shown the same colour as Page 1.

Q2 Has anyone else seen this?
I can post some code if it would help. Please specify which files.

I have re-run the exercises in Chapter 5 following a re-read. I renamed the website Chapter05A and re-opened the zipped Chapter files (this followed a 2-month break in studies). This time everything happened smoothly. Must have been finger trouble!
