Question about finding the code to set colors.

Solved... kind of.

I've had Component for a while, although I don't know much about customizing it. Following the advice in this tutorial, I'm putting my customizations in a user layer and my color theme in a theme layer. I've already tweaked my custom color theme using the interface LJ provides and now I want to copy what I have and put it in a theme layer.

I went the "Advanced" tab and clicked on "My Layers". One of the layers listed under Component is Auto-generated Customizations. However, I can't find the code to set the colors on my journal in that layer. I thought it was supposed to be there, but maybe I'm wrong. Does anybody know where I need to be looking?

LayerID: 3796715
Layer is publicly viewable.

Edit: I uploaded some pictures to show you guys what I'm talking about.
* My LJ with my Wizard-customized colors.
* Color theme "Jedi Cloak" listing in the Layer Browser, showing my Wizard-customized colors. (I don't know why my custom colors are showing up there, but I'm not that familiar with the Layer Browser; maybe they're supposed to.)
* The Wizard color customizing interface, showing my custom colors.
* The User layer automatically generated by the Wizard, showing only three of my custom colors: main_bgcolor, entry_link, and entry_link_visited.

Texture background


I'm new to this community. I want to know how I can be able to get a textured background on my LJ like Nebula and Gradient Strip.
I'm trying to explain very clearly. Is there an url for this textured background? or a custom css?

box size

I was just wondering, how do I change the size of the boxes in my layout? I know on GJ there's a special box and you just input how many pixels you want it to be, is there one for LJ like that or would I have to write out a whole code? And if so, what is the code? I'm new to component so please explain everything carefully. Thank you =).
