    Post Magento Design and Content Overview

    Magento provides a variety of simple-to-use design options that enable you to apply your own customized look-and-feel to your Magento web store with basic HTML knowledge.

    Following are some of the terms you should be familiar with when customizing the design of your store:

    Block: A Magento CE feature that modularizes page elements for easier management.

    Content block: Block that produces content, such as the content of a category list, mini cart, or product list. See also Structural block.

    Content Management System (CMS): A Magento CE feature that stores pages or parts of pages that you can use in your store.

    Layout: File that maps content blocks to structural blocks. More than one content block can be mapped to a single structural block.

    Skin file
    : File that define the visual functional specifications of page elements, such as text, graphics, and the logic behind buttons and other controls.

    Structural block: Block created for the sole purpose of assigning visual structure to a store page; for example, header, footer, left column, main column.

    Template: A collection of XML and other files that define the block structure and logic for visual presentation.

    Theme: a collection of templates and skin files that control the visual elements of your store. These visual elements are applied to all pages in your store, giving your store a consistent look and feel throughout.

    A very worth information. One should be familiar to these basic Magento terms and then proceed further with any kind of development or designing.
