A simple handmade XHTML/CSS website using a template
The aim is to create a very simple but functional website that will conform to XHTML and CSS standards. First we download a public-domain template from www.code-sucks.com (right). It will be a two-column fixed-width layout comprising a header, menu sidebar and area for the main content (below right). It does not look much yet, but with CSS it can quickly be customized.
The template comprises two files: an HTML document called index.html, which we will open in PageSpinner, and a CSS document called main.css, which we will open in Style Master. Rename the folder they came in if you wish, to reflect the project. Add a subfolder called images, in which we will store our images.
