Variant Dark is a 3-column template with multiple navigation menu options and, as the name implies, a light-on-dark colorscheme. The design is inspired by the kind of dark designs that were popular in the late 1990’s, back in the days when table-based layouts were the norm. But as with all free templates on andreasviklund.com, the code is written using the web standards of today. It is all valid XHTML 1.0 Strict and CSS 2.1. The template does not use any images, which makes it really small (just over 7 Kb unzipped). The layout width is 980px.
