Okay you want a pure HTML template, Sooo none of the following?
The reason I ask is this. If you rule out CSS you are giving up much style and if you rule out XML you will have to re-do it in a few years. XML will also work well with your search engine.
I assume this will be a data base back ended web site. Are you using SQL, MySQL, SQLi, Oracle, Sybase, Alpha, or something else?
How do you want the template?
a.) broken up in to 3 pages
3.) Mid section
b.) one page (you get the idea)
c.) something else
Short links to images okay? or must we use long links?
What scripting language are you using? ASP, JSP, PHP, Perl, or something else.
Last but not least... Your deal line? When do you present this to the old man(CO I assume)
Answer these and I will have a better idea.
