Besides being a great bookmarking utility, Linkatopia.com is a standards
based site. When a web site is designed carefully, according to web standards, the appearance of every

This is powerful stuff. Pages load faster, mobile devices can be supported, and the
creative possibilities are endless. Imagine being able to redesign an entire site without
touching any of the HTML pages!
Take a look at this example, then switch back to normal.
Inspired by the famous CSS Zen Garden,
this ongoing event will give designers a chance to showcase their talents.
Anyone can design a theme for their Linkatopia page with some basic understanding
of CSS. Sign up as a member of Linkatopia and create a "theme" for your page.
If your theme is outstanding, we'll host it in our upcoming Themes Gallery.
Other members will have the option of selecting your design
as their "default" theme, with your credit at the bottom.
Regardless of whether you submit a design to us or not, you can still create a theme and use it for your own page. But you must host the image files yourself. Test your stylesheet like this:

have this handy CSS
Quick Reference for you.
Your job will be to make a single stylesheet to replace the one currently used for
this site. Stylesheets we accept will become official designs and will be listed in
our "Themes Gallery" and in each member's profile preferences.
We encourage the following:
Entries will be reviewed as time permits. Obviously, as more designs are submitted it will take longer to review each one. We'll probably have a blog about designs at some point.
Please contact us if you have any questions or a design you want us to consider.
