The web templates that come with picasa are not valid html (lots of Internet Explorer specific mark-up). they also will not run/display .mov QuickTime Movies which many cameras produce in the web page. After doing some research on how to edit the templates and get them to appear as new/extra options in the web export window, i now have a clean xhtml export option. I used this for the Women of WW2 Memorial gallery, with a little post editing to add my header. If you like to have a look at the template or use it yourself then you can download it here.
