Hi, I’ve just red that new great article on netuts about using php with css files. I’ve known that technique, but never used it in any of my projects. And now I wonder, if it will be good to use it in themeforest items. Many items here come with different colour variations, and with that technique it would be really easy to maintain changes and use it to make more colour schemes. But I’m not sure it will be good from the point of person who buys that theme, it could be too complicated for someone who just want simple html page. So I’m not sure if its good for HTML Templates, but I thinks it’s great for WordPress themes.

What do you think?

It’s okay if you do so – but please remember that it’s generally smartest to offer a plain HTML /CSS template. If you force PHP implementation, you’ll immediately cut out a large portion of your potential audience.

If you choose do so, I’d also include a static version of the template as well. That the way, the purchaser has the choice.
