CSS - Cascading Style Sheets

Free and Commercial CSS Templates and CSS Layout Templates

The CSS Templates, CSS Layout Templates section has links to a variety of free and commercial Web page templates and layout templates based on CSS, including using CSS positioning for layouts. There are 2-, 3-, and 4-column all-CSS layouts, cross-browser, cross-platform layouts that work with a wide range of browsers, some including Netscape 4, and all or nearly all of them validate to W3C Recommendations, too. Some of the CSS templates include designs and images, while others provide the CSS layouts and templates for you to implement with your own designs. The commercial CSS templates include the designs and CSS layouts and are ready for you to add your own content.

My goal is to provide links only to quality CSS templates and CSS layout templates that are well tested for cross-browser compatibility. There are a couple of listings that don't provide cross-browser compatibility and testing information, so I've noted those within my annotated listing comments.
