XHTML Strict HTML Templates 2 Columns Fixed Width CSS-Based Layout

A tableless XHTML/CSS template that focuses on customization. After the success of my last template, reflection, I decided to stick with the "easy-to-modify" theme. The header is simple to change for one of your own, as is the accent colour.

To change the accent colour, search the style sheet for hex value #56B600 and replace it with one of your own. The top header image is added by the #header class definition.  

Semantically Coded

This template is coded using the markup as it was intended. The result is code that is simple to understand and widely supported in different browsers. Another benefit is that user agents that don't support CSS will still display the site's content coherently. You can test it yourself by disabling CSS in your browser.


Softened Cells is a fixed width template that will work out of the box at 640x480 and above. You can change this if you want by altering the width definitions of the #siteBox, #news and #text CSS classes.

Browser support for the template is very good because of the simple markup structure. It renders consitently in the following:

  • Firefox
  • Netscape
  • Opera
  • Safari
  • IE (Windows/Mac)


Images are fully supported using the two custom CSS classes .right and .left. Simply place an image in the paragraph you'd like, apply the class and you're done. Headings <h1> and sub headings <h2> act as boundaries, so you're images will always remain in context.

Big Links

One last thing for you to play with is the .links CSS class. It lets you create large link blocks in your content for whatever you want to emphasis. I used them on my site for the portfolio and links sections.

Terms of Use

The template is released for free, but I would appreciate it you gave me, FullAhead, credit. If you keep either of the header images that come with the template, you should also leave a link to ThreeTree, since he took them.

If you end up using this template, send me an message. It's always interesting to see how people modify my work. I enjoyed making it, so I hope you enjoy using it.
