Each layout could represent a site with five main sections: header, content, navigation, other stuff and footer. The basic markup, common to every layout, is the following: <div id="container"> <div id="header">Header</div> <div id="wrapper"> <div id="content">Content</div> </div> <div id="navigation">Navigation</div> <div id="extra">Extra stuff</div> <div id="footer">Footer</div> </div>

Arabic / Islamic geometry 02 The beginnings of these design studies These studies began a long time ago and derived from an interest I have always had in mathematics in general, and geometry in particular. Recently I came across a couple of studies that were among the first I carried out; some others have been lost and some are in private ownership. The studies which follow are all based on patterns I saw and explored, and I thought it might be useful to place them here for the record. Unfortunately there is no record of the examples they were taken from, so they will just have to stand as drafting exercises.
