This is an excellent question.

I was afraid of that. All my examples have been windowmaker-based
with the default theme, and many of them have used a slightly different
font for menus and titlebars. There is no difference in the _content_
of the windows, and since I use screenshooter for screen-grabs, I
could simply remove the window-manager decorations. 

It's a little immaterial in my case because I appear to have messed
something up royally: although I take .png shots, I am getting 
broken links with the output of the gnome stylesheets. Everything 
else in them works fine, so what I've done, I dunno.

I have a test account I can take screenshots from, but it's a pain
which I'd rather avoid, to be honest. I suspect, however, that my
alternative solution of "someone else can take them for me" is
unlikely to meet with much favour.
