Is there any good tutorials on converting XHTML/CSS TO WORDPRESS THEME... If someone cold please help me find one I would really appreciate it.

    Note: i have look at chris coyier tutorials(didnt really help me)

    You can't really "convert" an HTML template to a Wordpress theme. You need to start with the most basic Wordpress theme you can find and build your HTML around that, 1 template file at a time.

    yes you can...You break you html code down into pieces and add it to the wordpress theme....I just can figure out where some of the markup goes

    Perhaps we are just arguing over semantics here but the description you posted was pretty much identical to what I posted.

    You said "break you html code down into pieces and add it to the wordpress theme" and I said "start with the most basic Wordpress theme you can find and build your HTML around that."

    Are there some specific bits you are struggling with? this tutorial is a pretty good, detailed guide to getting started.

    Why not look at an existing template as an example and see where they put their code? It may help understand the "put this there in this there" bits.
