I'm creating a web-based report. It will be a single column, no menu. Just titles, graphs, tables. Maybe a header and a footer.

I've scoured the internet for a free, open source (or just 'free') CSS 'template' that will turn my grotty looking HTML page in to a nicely colored page with good fonts. Something simple I can just drop in.

Is there such a thing? My issue is that I'm not a designer, I just want to pop something in and have it work and look good.

If you really want to just drop something in and not think about it, the Blueprint CSS modules give a pretty decent, if plain, result. All you'll really have to do is some minor layout work to make the content column whatever size you want, as slapping it into a 960px one will be too wide for comfortable reading.

Blueprint is probably the most well-known, but Atatonic and Baseline are also worth considering.

  • Perfect, this is exactly what I was looking for, I knew something like these must exist but it's quite difficult to wade through a search for 'free css template'.
