Recently, I released a framework that I call a Web Theming Infrastructure, and I think it's worth dissecting and exploring here given the potential that I see in it. But first, I have to explain how I got to this point.
For more than a decade, web theming at Georgia Tech has been the domain of Institute Communications, and they have handled both specifications and implementation. Unfortunately, they've never been funded to act as a true central web development unit, so they have struggled to manage the implementation side of the equation. I would imagine that Georgia Tech is not alone in facing this kind of problem, but like most universities, we have been applying early 2000's techniques to a rather complex problem that needs a more sophisticated approach.
