This chapter began with a detailed look into the architecture of site pages. You should now have a solid understanding of how WSS supports page customization as well as the how and why behind safe mode processing. The chapter also provided an introduction to considering how to create business solutions that leverage page templates constructed using controls and Web Part zones.
The second part of this chapter discussed master pages and offered recommendations on the best practices for creating a custom branding solution. You learned that many different techniques can be used including the creation of a custom master page template and custom CSS file as well as using a custom site logo. For WSS developers who worked with previous versions of WSS, it should be clear that the support offered by WSS 3.0 is significantly enhanced over the support offered in previous versions.
