The Mossy Green Template is is based on one of the newest templates offered on our sister site - Expression Web Mobile Friendly Site Templates. This template uses some CSS3 for the rounded corners. The rounded corners will display as intended in newer modern browsers. They will degrade gracefully in older browsers and default to rectangular corners. This template uses a fixed width layout and is mobile friendly.
This template package includes:
- A complete DWT Site Template package which requires FrontPage 2003, any versions of Expression Web or Sharepoint Designer.
- A blank template that can be used with any web editor.
- A blank template which uses server side includes for the top menu, right menu and footer and can be used by any web editor.
The shamrock images used as the bullets are from Icons etc and have been resized much smaller.
Classes are included as part of the style sheet to float your images right or left or center them on the page.
Changing the Column Background Color
A background image is used to create the equal height column look. If you wish to change the color of the columns, you will need to create a new image.
Server Side Includes
This template package includes a template which uses server side includes for both the top and right menu as well as the page footer. You can edit the ssi files, publish the edited file and the change will show on all pages.

The Google Custom search box will need to be adjusted with the code for YOUR custom search. You can, of course, use any search engine you choose. The styling for the search areas is part of the external style sheet.

You can find detailed instructions for working with the mobile friendly site templates as well as a pdf file you can download and print.
Also resources on both drop shadows and rounded corners.
The XHTML code validates. Because the external style sheet uses some CSS3, it does not validate. However the CSS3 style rules used degrade gracefully in older browsers and you will see rectangular corners rather than the rounded corners the more modern browsers display.
