This next sample also includes a basic menu (although a different format), a "floating" heading, and a photo gallery where the customer can click on a photo to enlarge it. You could use this type of page to show examples of your work.

This next page is very basic-looking, but has some unusual features, such as a tabbed menu across the top and a YouTube video embedded in the page. This could be used to demonstrate your services or products.
