    Download the "Naked Theme", which is a blank default wordpress theme with the basic layout, and then style it

    @ Funk-woo10 -
    This is incredible, exactly i was looking for.
    Thanks a ton mate.

    @ simonspurr - nice idea, but what if we have our own design and have to code it? is it possible to style it out with some blank theme code?

    Well, if you are a pro. wordpress theme designer and also want to code your own themes and do that for money, then there is no escaping learning html / css.
    I recommend you buy a few good books on html and css or go to w3schools.com, after you learn html and css (and some basics of php) then you can start to mess around with coding wordpress themes.

    Yes, it does use tables for layout, but I still think is has good info on html basics. That and I don't know any other sites that cover the basics :) Books are better anyway IMHO.

    Who cares if they use tables. I code CSS div based layouts, and I still recommend W3Schools to people because of their good quality content.

    You can either learn CSS and PHP, or go into partnership with somebody wherby you do the designs and somebody else codes it for you, but if you can learn both you have the ability to charge some serious dollars I guess.
