    i used to download free templates for my auto/niche blogs.....been there done that....

    but idk, making a template via artisteer....(especially making the template to mirror a cpa landing page's style) has it's benefits....it's nice cuz i can kinda build a template on the fly depending on the offer i'm promoting. and since i dont have to worry about code and stuff like that i can have a new template done in little time.

    i really haven't had a need to download free templates anymore.

    don't get me wrong, artisteer isn't perfect by any means and the templates don't wind up looking kinda like a small time blog as opposed to a professional site....but it think it's the personal touch that draws pple in and makes the site look more trusting....

    I love it too. I usually just use it to get a good framework, then go in and add tweaks that Artisteer can't do.

    My only complaint is that I hate how they put 'Art-' in front of all the css classes/id's.

    Instead of manually doing it, I think you could just use 'find & replace all' in a text editor. Like so:

    art- ---> [blank] //for the css file

    .art- ---> . & ="art- ---> =" //for the template files
