Althoguh I don't have any directly to give you at the moment, I would advise some tips:
Any template demo page, send it through validators of both HTML (http://validator.w3.org/) and CSS (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/)
If you are going to use something like Dreamweaver, look specifically for templates made for it (preferably the version you are using).
If you get a mostly flash template, make sure that it's not nearly 100% flash, where people cannot see much at all without flash.
Be careful if you decide to opt for the "unique" purchase of the template, where they offer you the template for $$, but for $$$ you get exclusive rights and they won't sell it to anyone after that. I have actually seen a site that still offered this AFTER at least two other sites were using it (had some unique items that made a good search easy to find the two).
I have purchased a template before though. I'll see if I can find it on my server and send you the url to where I got one from.
Now of course, if it is something easy to fix, would still be a worthwhile product, especially for me because I'm horrible at coming up with original designs.
Thanks for posting the link to it!
Sure thing... remember it doesn't mean the artisteer code is invalid. It is easy for the person using it to imput bad code into the template. trust me, I know

Update. Ok, I installed it on a test system, and I will fully admit, I'm very impressed with that. Unlike the sites I tested (see previous post), each one it made did validate.
I work at a web development company, and just showed it to one of the guys who is very good at markup/layout for his opinion on the way it builds the site, and even he was impressed with it, with only a few small things he would do differently, but eay to adjust after given final template.
Now I tried it for generating a static page template, will be trying it this weekend for a Drupal template to see how well it integrates with that.
