If you’re a developer like me, you can appreciate an aesthetically pleasing website, but couldn’t create one if your life depended on it. Oh sure, I can sling HTML, DHTML, CSS, and JavaScript with the best of them, but I’m an implementer, not a graphic artist. So what to do if you’re too cheap to hire a graphic artist (or too lazy to deal with cross-browser compatilibity)? Microsoft has released a series of pre-built templates with some nifty features for ASP.NET 2.0. A wide variety of ASP.NET 2.0 features are used in the templates, ranging from Master Pages to Profiles to Themes to new ASP.NET controls. So go check out the ASP.NET 2.0 Design Templates.
