„As a web-developer you don%u2019t have to re-invent the wheel all the time. If it just has to work, and has to be valid, and has to have a nice, visually appealing design hierarchy, you just can use css-techniques developed in the web-dev-community over the last few years. If you take a look around, you%u2019ll find many templates, which include basic (X)HTML/CSS-markup.
You can start from there, learning and exploring the possibilities of CSS and modifying templates for your exquisite taste. Below you%u2019ll find a list of resources which offer free, gorgeous and valid CSS-based templates – usually with images and full layout structure, such as headers, navigation bars, content containers, sidebars and footers.
Usually developers require a link to the site where the template was downloaded from. So before using these templates it might be useful to take a look at the license agreement the developer provides.“
