    <p> first open source web template. This is a user centered design with emphasis on usability and accessibility rather than look n feel. No nasty tables have been used while designing and all the code is validated by <acronym title="world wide web consortium">W3C</acronym> validators. Moreover, the use of images has been kept to the minimum for small file size, hence less loading time. </p> 
    <p>Use the navigation tabs provided at the top.</p>

      <h3 id="intro">The introduction: </h3> 
      <p>Hello! nd welcome to my first open source web template. The color scheme is pleasing to the eyes and overall design is aimed at providing good usability to the user. That is to say...its a case of user centered design.</p> 
      <h3 id="design">The Design :</h3> 
      <p>I've used <acronym title="hyper text mark-up language">HTML</acronym>4.01 for markup and <acronym title="cascading style sheets">CSS</acronym> for layout, thereby ensuring a higher content to code ratio. I haven't used any images as I prefer giving much importance to colours and typography. No use of flash files, tables, image maps and scripts has been made so as to confirm to the accessibility guidelines. To use this template, you may need a <acronym title="what you see is what you get">WSIWYG</acronym> editor.(though any text editor would be sufficient). I encourage you to play around with the CSS file and modify it as per requirement. But please don't forget to send me the link, after you have done, so that I may see it.</p> 
      <h3 id="apnerve">The Author:</h3> 
      <p>hey! Its the time to blow my trumpet. Well... I'm not much of a designer but I do love designing web pages. This all started just a couple of months ago, when I first had a look at <a href=""></a>. Eversince I visited that page, a strong desire to design web pages grew in me. Then I started learning basic <acronym title="hyper text mark-up language">HTML</acronym> from <a href=""></a>, <a href="">htmlhelp</a>, and other online resources followed by viewing the source of major <acronym title="cascading style sheets">CSS</acronym> based pages. Hence, though I don't have a formal training in web-designing, I can design web pages fairly well. I'm also planning to learn <acronym title="php hyper preprocessor">PHP</acronym>, <acronym title="eXtensible hyper text mark-up language">XHTML</acronym>, JavaScripts in due course of time. </p>
