Hi elrod. Some quick notes according to your criteria (coming from
someone who knows nothing about themes):

Table of Contents

What is that weird image? :)

Tools section

A one-sentence description of the MakeTheme utility (this program packages
and prepares your theme for use in FreeAmp).

Why does the user have to download the .fat file, for tutorial purposes
only, or do they really need the stuff in it to make a new theme?

Theme definition section

Another important difference of XML is that every open tag requires
a close tag (not optional like HTML).

Explain that <Foo Bar="Baz"/> is shorthand for <Foo Bar="Baz"></Foo>

A link to the XML FAQ would be nice: http://www.ucc.ie/xml/

Last paragraph: windows should be capitalized (Windows)

Other than that, looks OK.
