Fonts and the Web

With my decision to move to Joomla! 1.5 began the long and arduous task of identifying what would work, what would not work, and what possibilities I had to make things cooler. I started out downloading Joomla! 1.5.3 and installing it on a test box so that I could begin exploring. I also began looking over the various templates that are currently available for Joomla! 1.5 to see if there were any I could use as a jumping off point. One of the great things about Joomla! is that they have a huge user community that is very active in the development and use of this Content Management System. When they began developing Joomla! 1.5 the developers opened up a contest for someone to design a new template that would be included as one of the standard templates out of the box. The Joomla! Forums managed the template contest. After several months of work the user community voted and a winner was chosen. One of the less obvious benefits is that all the templates that were entered into the contest were made available for download by the user community. This provided a great abundance of code from which you could learn or in some cases it was an opportunity to find a template that would be perfectly matched to what you were looking for.
