I want to create a simple web page with a menu down the side.  I want to use no, or very few frames or tables.  I do need to be able to format the text on the page.  What is the easiest way to create a simple page.  I am looking at Cascading style sheets but don't know if that will accomplish what I want.  I am open to suggestions, tutorials, or other resources.  By the way I am a rank beginner so I'll need some details.    Thanks

CSS will accomplish this but you have to know / understand them

I would not use frames but just a table with two cells.  Maybe maybe your nav (left) cell something like 15-20% or 150-200 pixels wide and the "main table" - well whatever width you want.  You don't say if you want a fluid design - once that stretches across the screen or not

I don't understand "fluid design".  I am trying to stay away from tables because it is my understanding that the search engine bots have a difficult time working with tables.

Fluid design mainly means 100% - ice design would be like 770 pixels.

>>my understanding that the search engine bots have a difficult time working with tables
Never heard of that.  I have heard they have problems with frames at times but you will see most sites still designed using tables

If you are going to be relying on FP to help you do this - especially write the code etc - you will need to use tables.  Otherwise, you would need to learn HTML / CSS to help you out.

Using tables is fine.  Nothing to worry about.
