Welcome to dcarter design
dcarter design is a highly talented design team, specialising in the creation of standards compliant website templates. These templates are free to use and can provide an internet presence for small companies or individuals who want a simple, stylish, contemporary website.
Website templates are pre designed webpages that are ready for you to update and insert your own web content. These website templates are hand written in XHTML 1.1 and CSS.
Web Standards: XHTML, CSS and Accessibility
All of these website templates are written entirely in XHTML 1.1 and CSS. This combination of XHTML and CSS ensures that the website is forward compatible, quick loading and easily customisable. Relative font sizes have been used to help aid accessibility and all of the designs can be validated (as XHTML 1.1 and CSS).
The benefits of XHTML and CSS templates are:
- Separation of style from content making your site easy to maintain
- Accessibility. Read more about it here
- Speed (file sizes are smaller and load faster)
- Search engine optimisation
- Forward compatibility
