Creating a WP theme

After visiting the “Using Themes” page in the WP Codex and downloading the Placid theme, it became clear that to derive a new theme from an existing theme–in my case Kubrick–involves changing the comment header inside style.css. And with such a vibrate WP community that likes to give back (e.g. a Photoshop template for Kubrick), it really can’t be any easier to personalize a WP site.
