First we are going to set up a fictitious company so that we have some kind of basis for the intranet applications that we are going to create. Then we are going to look at the file structure of the intranet. And then finally we are going to discuss the CSS and templates that will give the applications a uniform look.

Company/Intranet File structure

Our company is going to be called "Damara Nama Publishing." Its main function is to publish a magazine. It will have four departments: Sales, Finance, Administration and Publishing.

Each department will have a department manager. All department managers will have an access clearance level of "admin" in our intranet. This basically means that they will be able to access almost every application on the intranet. I say "almost" because not every department head will actually have access to all applications. Everybody else in the company will have limited access to the applications.
