I have coded my first page using PHP and CSS. I'm trying to make it as lean as possible. I am creating a calendar that makes it easier for me to make global changes to. On the calendar you'll see my classes that I teach. My classes change every year. Also dates happen to change randomly. I have jumped into PHP because I want to start using MySQL for all my lesson plans.

here's a calendar page for September:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<title>September</title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--

      background-color: #FFFFFF;
      background-image: url(http://beansroom.com/images/space.gif);
      margin-top: 100px;
}
-->
</style>
<link href="http://beansroom.com/calendar/cal.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

Is there something specific you are asking? Is there some part of this that doesn't work well? Or do you just want someone to go through all 400+ lines of code and opine on it?

I'm not trying to be offputting or anything, but what you are proposing to do is a lot of work and other people have had the same idea

Opinions would be great. This is my first attempt at PHP. I am not a coder and have spent 2 weeks thinking about how to make writing these calendars easier... just looking to see if maybe there is a simpler way...

It's a huge "question"...
May be you need to start with the basics...
For instance, I note that you don't even used a single loop in order to create the table (see the example below). This might be a starting point.
echo '<table border=1>'; // the border is for illustrative use
  echo '<tr>';
    echo '<td align="left">Column Title</td>';
  echo '</tr>';
  // $arr is an array that may have useful data (like names)
  foreach($arr as $everyData){
    echo '<tr>';
      echo '<td align="left">'.$everyData.'</td>';
    echo '</tr>';
  }
echo '</table>';
