    Just so i know...

    ... would it be possible for some talented person to transform this page from its current status (HTML) to CSS while trying to maintain the same look - just so i know what it will look like?

    I can e-mail all the required (if needed) files and the code stuff for the HTML gear things.

    I've had people telling me that i should change the site over to CSS, but frankly i just don't have the time to do so nor to find out/learn how to.

    What do you think i should do?

    Hello

    Yes I would say it is very possible to redesign that site with CSS/XHTML.

    Are you looking to hire a designer to redo this site? If so try the Trading Post There are lots of talented people in there.

    Hope this helps

    That's an extremely simple design and could easily be done without tables. SitePoint has a good book on this, as does Eric Meyer. If you don't have the time, and you really want it fixed, you better have a little money.

    It would probably take about 8 hrs of work to develop the entire layout in style sheets. A little more or a little less depending on the programmers skill.

    It'd look exactly the same, if that's what you wanted. Though a complete redesign would probably be better value.

    If you are a coder it's time to get into modern methods before you're left behind.
    If you're not then maybe it's time to employ someone who is. Day rates vary but expect to pay GBP 140 / Euros 210 / USD 230) as a minimum.

    hope it helps

    I can't afford to pay for anything on the internet and i've barely enough money to buy food every week so the chances of me paying someone are lower than low.

    Can someone give me a link to the best CSS tutorial (or whatever) website - and roughly how long would it take me to learn how to do it? Bearing in mind the only code i know is very basic HTML such as < b > <a href etc... (i use Frontpage Express for my sites).

    I also don't have much spare time to be on the internet or anything.
