Creating a custom template.

Templates are organized first by a template type and then by template class. Template types include page, region, report, list, button, label, and popup list of values (LOV). You can use template options to apply different colors or accents, different spacing and padding, and display form fields with different alignments. They reduce the need to have multiple similar templates defined in a theme.
