Hello and welcome to Autumn '05, a template I have submitted to the 2nd ever OSWD design contest. The contest theme is "fall" or "Autumn" hence the colours and theme of this template.
This template was produced to look unique yet be easy to use. It is essentially a simple 2 column layout focusing on the following principles:
- To have valid CSS and XHTML coding
- Original appearance
- Highly functional and accessible
- Contribute something to the web design community who have taught me so much
I have tried to make it easy to work with this template. I have annotated the CSS and XHTML
Editing can be done in a text editor such as Notepad or Crimson Editor and viewed in a browser (as the XHTML and CSS is fully commented) or you can use the excellent free NVU editor which can be downloaded here
Or of course you could use Dreamweaver, although sometimes the preview displays quite strangely.
