HI I'm a serverside developer always fascinated about nice looking webpages. I know HTML to the extent that i understand all HTML tags i can create tables and forms to test my server side components.
I really want to learn web page designing with nice looking menu bars frames, nice rounded table borders, with CSS and so on.

i will appreciate if someone could point me to the resources on the web where i can learn to build professional websites, or any books. Also i want to know if there are any design patterns to build the web pages

Thanks

look at
http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com/
it is nice tutorial from html
but i think you don't have to know much about html rather than javascript this bu seeing tips in sites like
http://www.javascript.com/
http://javascript.internet.com/
http://www.javascriptkit.com/
http://www.hotscripts.com/
this is the way to play on your html make it interactive

2nd way but good one you can brows the pages and if you see somthing you interest in you can save a page and see how they do it by any editor i prefer dreamwaver

The best way is to just look at the code of the pages you like. Design is a very subjective thing, and a 'good' design for one site might be horrid for another. Whether or not a design works is very dependent on the audience it's supposed to reach. You wouldn't want to put lots of hard to read text, or small text, or flashy graphics on a site for AARP, for example. ;-)

You're MUCH better off learning to create your own stuff, rather than using canned templates/designs. The canned designs always look just that -- canned. Just like lots of others. Besides that, the vast majority of them are pretty bad. ;-)

The links everybody has given you will help greatly. You can also do searches for html templates...  I like to use photoshop and imageready for the whole look of a site. This let's you be totaly "artsy" and free to make a page look as awesome as your creativity will let you be.  Imageready will let you export everything to html, just like what you seen photoshop..

It's pretty neat.

I find looking at other sites a good way to learn - if they do something you like you can view the source of the page (right mouse click on hte html page then click View Source).
This way if you like something you can copy the whole page source and rip out the bits you like. Of course this is just a good way to get ideas / examples of how do stuff.

while i'm here, if you are interested in HTML, the next "big thing" is XHTML and CSS layouts.
