A friend once asked “why do you still surf for web templates when you can create one?“. I answered, for fun. But then again I start to ponder and realiazed even if we are capable to create, there are still many great reasons to check out free templates out there.
Thanks to many of the generous souls, most of these web templates found online are no longer the same. A lot of them are high quality, XHTML compliant, cross-browser compatible and comes with Photoshop .PSD files. As a developer cum designer myself, I wouldn’t say you should get a nice free template and implement directly, but rather, check out the structure, design and codes. Labeling, naming, styling and structuring are what interest me more, and I’m pretty sure there’s more if dug deeper.
Without further ado, here’s (another) 38 Free Elegant XHTML/CSS Website Templates. Full list after jump.
