I just finished a template for such a site. I don't claim to be a 
graphic artist, so please be kind in your criticism:

Some major problems were pixel rounding (which still isn't perfectly 
fixed), and the lack of a max-width attribute in IE6, which I 
circumvented with the use of javascript to create resolution-defendant 
layout (a technique which I pilfered from The Man In Blue 
<>). I also 
fixed the two-column float problem by hiding a print-only image 
(width="0" height="0" without CSS) that clears both floating columns, 
pulling the container's background with it.
