Attached is a rough mockup of what the layout will be like.
The layout must be created using CSS/XHTML and a table based layout will not be accepted. Layout should be free of errors in all major browsers. The psd file should be minimally sliced.
A slideshow plugin should be installed to allow excerpts. Also a featured post plugin should be installed to allow the graphics on the home page to automatically get updated in a widget by the administrator.
The main navigation menu should be created using custom menus with dropdowns reflecting the hover color and all the pages in the mockup should be created so that I can easily drop in the content.
