Same design, different content, 2 different URL

I am considering using the same design for 2 different websites with 2 different URL.

I am wondering if the same design ( even though it is different content ) can hurt the seo of any of the sites ?

Thank you,

Not as long as the content is radically different (as viewed by a bot).

I would tweak the html/css a bit to make sure it has some different "weight" to it.

There are millions of sites out there on blog services and domain services that have identical templates and seem to get along fine. G is very adept at ripping out templates to find the core content.

This line was sandwiched into the above reply. The other two paragraphs indicate it wouldn't matter.

Agree: It's the content that matters. Not the color, font or style.

I have three sites that are related topics, but different specific content, all using the same cms theme template in different color schemes. It had no visible effect on my search engine rankings when I moved them to the cms several months ago.
