New WordPress Theme – Elegant
Here’s introducing the first of more to come publicly available amreekandesi themes – Amreekandesi-Elegant.
Elegant is a two column theme, with a right sidebar. The theme is tested on Mozilla Firefox as well as Internet explorer, which is to say that it results in the same display on both browsers (That’s a minor achievement in itself, for non tech oriented folks).
Users also have the option to put up a custom header image, and modify the color of the text displayed in the header. If you so wish, you can turn off the text in the header as well.
This theme is compatible with WordPress v2.7, the current version of the awesome blogging platform.
This theme is distributed under the GPL license. You are free to use it and make any modifications, as long as i get my credit ;)
Click on the following link to download the zipped theme file

Have fun! In case of any issues, send me a note, or use the comment space.
FYI, this theme would be useful only if you have a self hosted blog. If your blog is hosted on wordpress.com then you can only use the themes provided by wordpress. This ability to customize the blog was one of the bigger motivations we moved over to our self hosted blog last year.
