The New Orleans JumpStart has been designed with the Umoja String
Quartet and their jazzy feel at the center. Two pages, a home page and
contact page, are included in this JumpStart. Both pages feature a fixed
width, centered design with a scrollable content area. The home page
includes a customizable MP3 player built in Flash that includes music
from from two Umoja String Quartet CDs: "Songs of Our Fathers" and
"Things Ain't What They Used To Be."
The pages are constructed using valid XHTML 1.0 markup and formatted using valid CSS 2.1 styling. We provide an extensively commented style sheet so you know what each piece does and how to change it to suit your design, as well as another version of the style sheet with the comments stripped out so you don't have to cut out all those extra kilobytes by hand when you're ready to go live! New Orleans also follows the WAI and Section 508 accessibility guidelines to provide you with a solid foundation for your work.
Beyond just the pages, we've also included all the source files used to create both of the layouts, both PNG and Flash. All layers in the PNG file are organized and labeled so that it's easy to make any modifications you need.
The graphic and code techniques used to create New Orleans are explained fully in the 14 tutorials that we've included in your download. Those techniques that are not covered in the bundled tutorials are explained in this article.
