This tutorial goes through the steps of creating a joomla template. The template uses cascading style sheets (CSS) to produce a layout with minimal use of tables. This is a desirable goal as it means that the template code is easier to validate to World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards. It will also tend to load faster, be easier to maintain and perform better in search engines. The template also is source ordered for optimal performance in SEO.
The template used in this tutorial can be found in the release of Joomla 1.1
(Right now it can be found in our library)
