Zen theme intends to be a good starting point for a custom CSS theme

Zen is the ultimate starting theme for Drupal 5. If you are building your own standards-compliant theme, you will find it much easier to start with Zen than to start with Garland or Bluemarine.

The idea behind the Zen theme is to have a very flexible standards-compliant and (relatively) semantically correct XHTML theme that can be highly modified through CSS.

Out of the box, Zen is clean and simple with a provided fixed-width subtheme called Zen-fixed.

The name is an homage to the CSS Zen Garden site where designers can redesign the page purely through the use of CSS.

This theme has been written for Drupal 5 and there is (currently) no version for 4.7

    Managed to modify the Zen theme to suite our internal CSS’s and all seems to work ok except for the fact that the Admin pages break in IE6 – googled around for a fix but that didn’t work unfortunately – note to self – need to find the link to that fix again. One workaround is to use a different theme for admin, or the other more obvious fix – use a standards compliant browser.
