Q. How long would it take to design my site using one of your templates?
A. This really depends on the complexity of your site and your level of experience.
If your site has 5 - 10 basic text-based html pages, then it could take a couple of hours to design it. If your site has 10 or more graphic intensive pages that includes: add-ons using Java, dhtml and ASP programming, then it could take anything from a few days to a few weeks.
