I was trying to code my theme before but was having problems with getting it to work right with all of the tags.. not knowing which page and which tag did what.
So then, I tried removing all CSS from a theme to make it blank so I could figure out which each part was. But, that made it so the page doesn't scroll at all and it ran down the page and you can't see it anymore.
If someone could just give me a link to a download of a blank theme (sidebar on the left, please) it would help a lot. :D
