I’m not new to web design but definitely haven’t design a new site in years, I have only been updating and making small changes to existing ones. I’m just new to all the new tools to design a site. I’m creating a site from scratch and I’m just a little confused about my layout and what tools to use on it. My questions are the following:
1. Should I use tables, frames or what is the best choice to start on my layout?
2. I will like to use CSS for my site where can I find a good book or a good site with excellent tips?
3. One thing that is been bugging me a lot is for each page that I create do I have to repeat my navigation tool bar and logos. How do I make it change just the body of my site so I don’t have to repeat everything on each child page? I’m planning on having a header and probably side columns with navigation menus and probably some advertisement.
4. What is the main difference between HTML vs XHTML and what should i used?
I’m very familiar with HTML i just need some help on my layout and how a website gets driving.
I’m planning on designing this site in Dreamweaver.
Thanks for the help.
