O U T L I N E

This will be the most robust template design for Joomla. There are several facets to this template design that will require excellent design and programming skills.

The template must be straight CSS, validate, and delivered in a Joomla upload package along with sources files, i.e. javascripts and PSD files, etc. I want strong graphical detail, which means outstanding Photoshop laying skills. This template will have several complimentary color themes.

The features I am looking for are:

1. AJAX SLIDING RIGHT-PANEL
See example: [url removed, login to view]

2. COLOR/THEME PICKER
There will be six (6) different color themes for this site, each corresponding to a different section or area of the site.
