I'm new to seo & I was reading how google's panda update now penalizes sites with duplicate content.  My question is, when they say "content", do they simply mean text within the site, or does this include a site's html as well?


The reason I ask is because, I was thinking of purchasing a prebuilt website template for my new website but this template would obviously have been purchased & used by others as well.  If google penalizes for this, I'll need to look into an alternate route.

Templates are not 'content'
