In Detail

Drupal’s theme layer, and the themes that use it, are responsible for the look and feel of a Drupal web site. Themes have the final say and ultimate control over almost every aspect of each page. Good themes consist of all the same elements that you would find on any reputable web site, including standards-compliant XHTML markup, CSS, and JavaScript. How it all comes together is what is so special and what makes Drupal themes so flexible and powerful.
