    I'm currently making a new template to use on my site, but I haven't gotten too far yet in making it. I use Frontpage (it's all I can use that I'm good at) and I can't figure out how to split the cells away from each other so it looks like what I have in the file below (used paint to make that file).

    I got the idea of this template from this site. I think its a lot better than I have now :D.

    Anyway, I assume few people here use Frontpage, but is there anyone here than could make this possible with their program? I haven't gotten too much sucess in Frontpage yet... :doh

    Part of the problem is that you need to have a basic knowlege of HTML, if you don't then start with XHTML, HTML is on its way out. XHTML is not that hard either. If you want, post your code using the code feature so we can help you out.

    Frontpage :doh

    Oh well, to help a fellow member is always beyond fun ;)

    I am guessing you want your image to be put into HTML so it looks like that in frontpage? Here it is:
    HTML:
     <html>
     <head>
     <title>Your Page</title>
     </head>
     <body>
     
     <table width="750">
     <tr>
        <td width="150" valign="top">
         <table width="100%" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#000000">
         <tr>
          <td align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Navigation</td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
     <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><p>News<BR>&nbsp; Recent News<BR> &nbsp; Archive News</p></td>
         </tr>
         </table>
        </td>
     
        <td width="500" valign="top">
         <table width="100%" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#000000">
         <tr>
          <td align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">!Welcome! Current News Bulletins</td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
          <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">&nbsp;</td>
         </tr>
         </table>
        </td>
     
        <td width="100" valign="top">
         <table width="100%" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#000000">
         <tr>
          <td align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Latest Poll</td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
          <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">&nbsp;</td>
         </tr>
         </table><BR>
     
         <table width="100%" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#000000">
         <tr>
          <td align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Latest News</td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
          <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">&nbsp;</td>
         </tr>
         </table><BR>
        </td>
     </tr>
     </table>
     
     </body>
     </html>

    Cool, good job wordless, it looks good. If you want this to be XHTML compliabt, use this code:
    HTML:
    <!DOCTYPE html 
     PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" 
     "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
     <html>
     <head>
     <title>Your Page</title>
     <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />
     </head>
     <body bgcolor="#000000" text="#000000">
     <table width="750">
     <tr>
        <td width="150" valign="top">
         <table width="100%" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#000000">
         <tr>
          <td align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Navigation</td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
          <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">News<br />  Recent News<br />   Archive News</td>
         </tr>
         </table>
        </td>
     
        <td width="500" valign="top">
         <table width="100%" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#000000">
         <tr>
          <td align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">!Welcome! Current News Bulletins</td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
          <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"> </td>
         </tr>
         </table>
        </td>
     
        <td width="100" valign="top">
         <table width="100%" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#000000">
         <tr>
          <td align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Latest Poll</td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
          <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"> </td>
         </tr>
         </table><br />
     
         <table width="100%" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#000000">
         <tr>
          <td align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Latest News</td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
          <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"> </td>
         </tr>
         </table><br />
        </td>
     </tr>
     </table>
     </body>
     </html>
    :D

    Cascading Style Sheets. You can use them to do many different types of effects globally or locally on one page. Plus once you start to actually code your tables or anything else it's much easier to apply effects.

    Check out my sig for the W3C link for more info or ask here.

    our main site {WWW} uses tables similar to what your talking about, iot would be easy to take one side off of them.


    if your lazy you could also go with a CMS (content management system) like php nuke or vbhome (lite) the one this site uses.

    heres an example of a php nuke site (our test site):
    http://www.digital-deception.net/nuke/

    anyway we use vbulletin now not phpbb so we want to switch to a vbulletin solution.
