There's been an incredible response to the "Aura" templates developed by our own Ben Bishop. Web design blogs the world over have been discussing the Aura release. Daemonite was one of the testing grounds for the "look" which has been released under Creative Commons.
Aura provides a well structured format for web documents and is easily adapted into content management and web publishing systems. Certainly can attest to that. The new look FarCry sample site hits the ground running with Aura templates. The templates were perfected to coincide with the release of FarCry v2.
Aura makes it easy to have great looking webpages. By using XHTML1.1 & CSS web technologies, Aura provides flexibility and adaptability and ensures your pages are accessible to web-enabled devices. Ben's put together a great little 8-step guide to skinning Aura so it couldn't be easier to give the templates a whirl. Not to mention ideas for extending the solution with drop down menus and the like.
I'm still hanging out for the completion of the top-secret "Lava" or "Liquid Aura" project that's going to provide the option of non-fixed-width templating love.
