References for Today's Class: 2/11

Today, in class, I'd like you to choose an html template from Dreamweaver (one of the two-column options with a header and footer), and re-style several elements. Don't just change the elements in a random manner – try to make all your styling cohere into an attractive design. There are at least six elements I want you to alter:

1. Insert new text, instead of the Dreamweaver "dummy" text. You can use Lorem Ipsum text.
2. Style the text differently.
3. Change the margins and/or padding on some elements.
4. Insert a few links in the text, and change the styling of the links.
5. Insert at least two images, and "float" them relative to the text.
6. Change the background color of all the elements (header, footer, sidebar, content).

And here are some links to online color palette resources:
