The Enterprise Web Design Template is made up of a number of "components", each with its own function, style and requirements. Each component varies in its allowance or creativity, with some being very restrictive to others allowing great latitude:
Enterprise Branding and Search Component
State Entity Branding (Banner) Component
Site Navigation Component
Breadcrumb Navigation Component
Content Area Component
State Entity Footer Component
Enterprise Footer Component
The Enterprise Web Design Template (EWDT) is recommended by the 7020 Design Standards: "All externally-accessible web pages should use as their source the Enterprise Web Design Template. All components of the template should use the source code as written in the supporting HTML and Cascading Style Sheets, except where noted below. This standard facilitates enterprise wise uniformity and accessibility compliance."
The CSS Schemes:
By default, the WEDT uses two templates: A "Standards CSS file" that enforces compliance with the 7020 Design Standards and a "Scheme CSS file".
While the EWDT defaults to the Blue scheme, you are not obligated to use the Blue scheme. Feel free to change the scheme for your site, or create your own scheme ensuring accessibility to persons with disabilities.
