    74 A theme for a web site provides the "look and feel" of the pages. It gives the overall layout for pages -- it tells where major page elements, like navigation controls, menu bars, side bars, footer, are placed. It specifies colours and backgrounds and logos.

If you could come up with static designs for the following pages, or programmers can do their thing and make Sahana Eden beautiful. If you can design and program, even better!
