I have a Homepage and inner page, which are well coded in strict XHTML 1.0.
I need you to create a Wordpress theme from these pages.
It is a simple site -- just a brochure kind of site for a small business, with just a few pages.
I also need a slightly modified version of this theme which displays news headlines on the homepage. So when, sometimes, there the client has some news, the client can switch to the alternate version of the theme that has news on the homepage. The news headlines will link to posts -- everything else will be pages.
