The FMStudio Templates and Icons module allows FMStudio users to get a jump start on their pages by using a nice CSS enabled template as a starting point for an FMStudio page. Templates are easy to use and automatically install dependent files, while icons are very quick and easy to apply into any Dreamweaver page (even non-FMStudio pages).
