The css and html that went into this site are modified versions of code produced by Andreas Viklund. His site offers free and commercial templates which are easy to modify and adapt to your needs. You should really check it out. Please feel free to use and modify any of the html or css used on this site. There is no need to reference me, but I do ask that you reference Anreas Viklund and provide a link to his site if you use sizable portions of the css.
Many of the colors used on this site are adapted from the Tango palette. The palette was originally designed for use with icons, but I think that they are very pleasing and are suitable for use in a variety of settings.
