Do you mean tutorials on how to make templates? Or a template resource like http://www.draac.com/htmlextratablepage.html

I'm still confused. A tutorial to make a template would be like a tutorial to make a jigsaw puzzle.
Do you mean "How do I build a webpage from scratch?" Once you've seen the process from doing the document in notepad to seeing it displayed in a browser, it's not difficult to see how you can expand from that. It took alot of searching for the right resource to take me through the process. Once I figured it out, I made a whole bunch of (now deleted!) templates just to see how changes affect the layout.
Here's my little tutorial
In a nutshell:
1. Open Notepad.
<html> <head> <title>Hello World</title> </head> <body> Hello World </body> </html>
4. Navigate to the document in your file manager (MS Explorer).
5. Highlight ".txt" with the cursor.
6. Type in ".html" where ".txt" is highlighted
7. Click somewhere else on desktop.
8. When prompted that "changing the name may make the file unusable" mentally think "so?" and click "OK".
9. Voila, you've created an html document that you can doubliclick to open. (ie. your first template to copyright as your own!
10. To make changes go "VIEW/SOURCE" and it should open in notepad (unless something else has wrestled that feature away from your browser.) You can make changes, save, and refresh the browser to see your changes. (personally, I go "make the change,ALT+F+S, ALT+TAB, F5, view the change in the browser,ALT+TAB to go back to the notepad source. Just a quick way to switch between the two.
Is this the kind of tutorial you're after?

Templates? or Template tutorials?
A search at Google on 'free web templates' garnished me 1.39 Megahits, and a search there for 'web template tutorials' got me 154 Kilohits.
I don't as a rule use templates so I can't really verify any of them. Some free templates (I've heard) have a hard time passing validation!
Time for bed.

Guess I just didn't look in the right place.
I guess I need to go back and rewrite that part of the lecture!

However, when I searched for the "free" titorials on templates all I got was free templates with little or NO tutorial.
I have an old Java Script book and it has nothing, HTML book one 1 page (where the word template appears), nothing in Python or VB.
With Kartoo I could get no tutorial links.
Do you have a tutorial site in mind?

A template is just a set of html documents sprinkled with images. Now, do you want HTML tutorials or do you want graphic tutorials?
Of course the most important ingredient is imagination, if you find a tutorial on this please let me know.

when I searched for the "free" titorials .......
Like I said, there's a million tutorials on the (ahem) naked internet. Mine was just one.
Are you looking for tutorials for various layouts? Same thing. If my company told me that there was absolutely nothing for me to do for the next few months I would consider writing one just for my own education. A tutorial to make templates. Hmmmm. Is there really a market?
What I'd like to see is a resource of audio clips where you can listen to an instructor lead novices through the process of creating their first webpage.

I agree that they were rather busy... I am not real fond of busy setups... they are distracting to some extent.
Looks Like I gotta learn JAVA Script!
