+Theme .info file
+ Your sub-theme's .info file describes the basic things about your theme: its
+ name, description, features, template regions, CSS files, and JavaScript.
+ Don't worry about all these lines just yet.
+
+CSS
+ Once you have created your sub-theme, look at the README.txt in your
+ sub-theme's css folder.
+
+Templates
