customising a ootb theme RWD/Modern

customising a ootb theme RWD/Modern


I'm using Magento CE 1.9 and want to customise one of the built in themes.

I know its possible to create a new theme and then inherit from an existing theme (using fallback and theme.xml) but because I want to customise RWD or Modern can I alter these directly since they are not core files ?


I've experimented a little also with local.xml , adding this to the layouts, is this an alternative to the fallback technique ?


I don't want to create a theme from scratch, just change font, colours and also remove ''Estimate Shipping and Tax'


Any advise appreciated.
