Created as an entry and accepted as an official design of The popular CSS Zen Garden, Zenfandel was a successful experiment in both design and CSS. The design consisted of a single page as is the theme at the Zen Garden. Participants of the Garden are given a static HTML file and told to create and code a design of any kind for it using only CSS. The HTML file cannot be modified. This demonstrates the power of CSS for controlling the presentation of a Web site. Each page of the Zen Garden displays a different design while the content stays the same.
Zenfandel has a wine/vinyard theme and the name is a play on the name of one of the popular wines, Zinfandel, but with a Zen feel. The photos were obtained from Stock Exchange and manipulated to help further the theme—complete with custom labels on the corks and bottles at the bottom of the page.
