I have 5 designs (html+css).
Here is an example of design [url removed, login to view]
They are all article sites with similar structure. There are only 2 page templates - main page and inner page.
Articles may belong to many categories (2-3 cats).
Every article should have it's image with preview on the main page (as it is on the example of design)
There are sub categories on some sites (to the third level)
Every site should have the next plugins/blocks (don't know how it called in drupal):
2. Feebburner (RSS)
3. Social wigets (facebook likes, google +1, tweetme and other) at the bottom of the article
4. Resent articles block (show last N articles)
5. Article rating (stars for example 1 to 5) and Showing Top-10 articles.
ModX CMS is more preferable.
