A few questions about making themes for OS6

Just upgraded my Bold 9700 to OS6, I got my feet quite wet with OS5 theming, but I need a few questions answered.

1. What is the difference between Custom and Custom6 layouts?
2. Does anyone have any SVG files for the BlackBerry6 layout? I noticed that BlackBerry6 does not have homescreen SVG, while the Custom layout for OS5 usually generates a homescreen SVG, though a small one. It's as if BlackBerry6 is not actually a layout itself, rather it invokes the standard OS behavior.
3. Are there differences between SVG code for OS5 and OS6 themes? When I imported an SVG I used for an OS5 theme, Theme Builder 6 says something like "SVG Tiny 1.0 is unsupported" (although it imports just fine, never simulated it though)

Re: A few questions about making themes for OS6

Well "Custom"  layout will be OS 5,and "Custom6" will be OS 6.If you make an svg for OS 5 it won't work on OS 6,you have to create it for an OS 6 device.
