SharePoint 2010 Page Design


How do I create a design similar to the screenshot in SharePoint 2010. I am specially interested in the creation of the Header area, Head Line, Sub Header 1 and Sub Header 2. I am new to SharePoint 2010 and would appreciate any help with the direction I can take to program this page.

That's a very broad question.

What kind of SharePoint page do you have in mind? A publishing page will need a different approach than a web part page.

In a web part page, the web part zones are arranged with the help of an html layout table. Using SharePoint Designer, you can start from an existing web part page and re-arrange the table and its elements using html, then save the page and add the desired web parts in the browser. The same applies to a wiki page.

For a publishing page you will need to create a page layout to position page elements.

You may need to step back a bit and explain the bigger picture. What do you want to achieve?

I was thinking more on the lines of a publishing page.

That's not quite what I meant by "bigger picture".  If you don't provide information, it's really hard to help.

As I said above, for a publishing page you need to create a page layout with SharePoint Designer. You can use regular html and CSS techniques to position the elements on the page.
