I've been asked to design a website and integrate it into joomla 1.5

i've never done this before so i need to learn it
i know its a vague question, but how long would it take to integrate 1 design with 3 templates into joomla for a novice (who knows html css well)

also, how long would it take to integrate if an experienced person was doing it? (if the html and css was coded up)

    I don't think it would take you more than a couple of days of coding if you had the design finished to implement it into Joomla, but you would have to learn how the Joomla template system works first.

    Depends how quick you learn / how much experience you have with similar things. A week of a little each evening and you should be comfortable I'd say. Otherwise you can probably learn the basics in a solid day, but that would be fairly dry :)
