Designs often have a few elements which don't need to be easily edited and can essentially be "hard wired" into the template files. In our design there are three or four images which fall into this category. In this lesson we'll edit the page.tpl.php file to insert our design assets from Lesson 5: Extract Design Assets. By the end of this lesson you will know which variables can be used in a template file to ensure the correct directory is always used for hard-coded image files.
