Help me implement a header area  for a site

PLEASE ONLY ANSWER IF YOU CAN HELP ME GET THIS IMPLEMENTED ...


Please  have a look at the below link for current header design(not much actually)...

http://173.192.200.205/~designer/design1/


As you can see there are two menu links(Home, Post AD) on left  and two menu links on right (Login, Sign Up).


Once the user logins, the links on the right change to Account Details, Logout etc.


I'm looking for someone to possibly  help me  implement some kind of a  header design as i'm not a css expert or a designer. It  should display the menu links as mentioned above as well as fit a logo(like one that's there currently).  

The header would remain consistent throughout all the pages of the site.


I came up with something like the link below, but i'm looking for something better(difficult to describe but possibly accomodate more menu links if needed, attractive, looks a bit filled :)

All help appreciated.

Thanks.

If you are going to have more than 10 or 15 pages on the site, you should do a #INCLUDE for the header on all pages.  The format is, with server side includes turned on on the web server (most linux is on) --

<!-- #include file|virtual="header.html" -->

The header then becomes its own file, and it stays consistent across the entire site, you only have to change it in one place.  The text in your first example is much too small.

If you want the header to change with each different click, then you want to use PHP or ASP to do that.

I should have provided this link as mentioned above: Server Side Includes.  Sorry about that.
