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

Sympal Theme could serve as the basis of a CSS theme for grassbase

A base theme. A framework for CSS themes. A theme developers theme.

If you have been following some of the recent CSS and webdesign trends, you might have noticed the trend slowly bending towards semantic correct designs. As it should have been from the start.
This means that you don’t just design a site, but really build it. Starting with a good blueprint, which results in a good foundation.

Such a foundation must be semantically best. This way we fulfil four mayor requirements, for free:

* fully SEO supporting
* accessible on mobile devices
* highlight the content, content comes first
* use very consistent XHTML, CLASSnames and IDnames

In fact we want to use three buzzwords:

* Source order
* Tableless
* What’s in a name
