That about covers the process of creating your own iWeb templates and (through a template set) your own iWeb themes. The process might seem a bit daunting at first, particularly if you want to change a large number of formatting items in the index.xml file. However, once you get the hang of it, you’ll find that the process is not too terrifying—although it might seem rather time-consuming because you’ll need to duplicate and make changes to each template type to create a theme.
Keep in mind that although this process works in iWeb 1.0 and 1.1., there is no guarantee about what changes Apple will make in future iWeb updates. The iWeb 1.1 update added not only themes but also an entire new template, as well as other features. Although this is not a reason to avoid creating your own themes (or purchasing themes), it is something to keep in mind and a good reason to keep your original unedited version of the iWeb application around in case you encounter problems after installing an iWeb update.
