For those that are not aware, Office has long included the functionality to support 2 separate template folders within each of the primary applications such as Word, Excel, etc. The first and most common templates folder is the individual's personal templates folder, which is located within their user profile by default. There is also a "Workgroup Template" folder available. Templates within the Workgroup Template folder are displayed to all users of the machine along with any personal templates they may have. The view is "blended" so there is no distinction between individual or workgroup templates.
As you can see, there is a wide variety of Joomla templates available out there, on the web. All you have to do is search for them.

It is possible to fall into a number of design traps if you are not completely comfortable with web design. Those who have at one time used Microsoft FrontPage are aware that it is possible to build certain constructions that look the same but have different construction. This may look good when viewed only with Microsoft Internet Explorer. The same page view with Firefox or another browser may find that it is all out of shape and balance. The design skill that goes into the building of a good template will save a person from this danger. The template will have proper structure and consistency in its design. It will probably have commented areas which show where to type in the text. This consistency makes a good website and saves us from the pain of getting negative comments on our work.
For this type of work it is easier to use a straight bit with a collar guide because you can adjust the cutting depth to match the thickness of the shelf support stock. Collar guides will displace the cut from the exact edge of the template.
