of your site. Several sample themes are included in the Drupal
installation and more can be downloaded from drupal.org.
Customizing each theme depends on the theme engine. In general, each theme
contains a PHP file themename.theme which defines a function header()
that can be changed to reference your own logos.
Simple customization of your theme can be done using only CSS. Further
