Description:

Hi! Greek lettes on the buttons, frame to match, view the screenshot for a good idea, its hard to describe...
Oh yeah the button arrangement(its hard to tell) is the standard:
Menu#####################Min Max Close
Now comes with matching colour scheme for all you colour co-ordinated people out there :)

As long as you chose to put greek leters, let them have some meaning. On close button but greek 'k' for kleio (close). On Minimise put greek 'e' (epsilon) for elattono (minimise). And for Maximise I'd sugest greek 'a' (alpha) for anoigo (Open).

At least this way it's gonna have some meaning.

or something like this:
epsilon (e) for "elachistopiisi", minimization,
mi (m) for "megistopiisi", maximization,
sigma (s) for "skiasi", shade,
kappa (k) for "klisimo", close
alpha (a) for "anigma", open
tau (t) for "termatismos", termination

the bad thing is that most of these characters might not seem so exotic to you, as they resemble to respective latin characters or scientific symbols, so you may consider using letters like phi, psi, ksi, omga, etc, even if they do not mean anything...

ps: indeed, kalimera means good morning :)

out of subject: Why I may not type non-latin characters? Shouldn't be better using Unicode?

... the symbols you are using are not "hieroglyphics", they're just greek alphabet letters!
Please, before writing make sure you know what you are writing!! ;-)

yeh i know, but i though heirogyphics wud maybe sound better? well ill update the theme so that both of u r satisifed. ill make the buttons more distinguishable, there in the normal patern:
Menu######################Min Max Close

and il rename it greekICE or something. thats if you think it COULD be a good deco? reply so i know what to do. teenagers are not decisive....

I would say you are wasting your time, as it is.

I can't discern any difference between the buttons... which one is close/min/max ?
