    Most time I can tell a site made in css. Most not all. So I was wondering if you could tell me if some of these might be css? If so maybe a general how they did it with out all seperations that usually screams css? I can't look at the code because they are just picture samples.

    Some of the ones that I wonder about are
    Cosmic Encounter
    Garden Flavor
    Azzuro
    Piece of Heaven

    Just scrool to the bottom where it says premade web sets.

    Well theres a very high probability they contain at least a little css even if its just inline styles.

    They certainly look like they probably do have css, however this is just a technology, many of the results can be created with plain HTML and possibly a little javascript, its just its less maleable and therefore not as good a way to build a site. Theres no way you can tell the active stuff as its just an image.

    Why don't you just ask the template seller how the templates are built ? Do they use css ? If so are the styles inline ? If they are external stylesheets, have they split them into seperate stylessheets for layout, fonts, look & feel etc. Do they use table based layout or divs ? Do they support accessability etc.

    I'm no css guru but thats my thoughts...

    If you look at the portfolio2 you can link direct to the sites there and view the source...

    From what I can see the various different sites use all different approaches.

    Thank you Dmarsh. I think I will email her and ask some of those questions. I just like the looks of a open flowing site more then one that is seperated with lines and boxes. And I have not learn how to do this yet in css or if it is even possible. Thanks again, you have been very helpfull.

    No problemo Mitzs glad to help ! My knowledge of css is fairly limited despite having worked on several large corporate websites, I'm not a front end web developer.

    I think this site seems quite good :-
