After you click on the Template tab, you'll see three links.

Edit HTML | Pick Classic Template | Customize Design.

Click on the Customize Design link.

You'll then see a window that says "Give your blog a whole new look!". Click on the UPGRADE YOUR TEMPLATE orange button.

Choose a starter template. I just choose the Simple one and then click on SAVE TEMPLATE.

You'll then see a layout of the page and three links at the top.

Page Elements | Edit HTML | Template Designer New!

Click on Edit HTML.

Now you can upload the template in two ways.

1/ Upload a template from a file on your hard drive. This is the XML file you've downloaded.

2/ Delete the current XML code in the template window. Cut and paste the code from your new XML file into the template window. Click SAVE TEMPLATE when done.

Hope that helps...
