I would like to know how you guys get such nice graphics on your website. I use paint to make my pictures, plan on getting Photoshop soon, but still, I ain't that good. Also HTML is a hsatle to fit so much stuff next to each other. I am confused. Somone help me, iI think I am going to get a new book that explains all html. I used one from 1996 and it is very basic, so...

Photoshop CS2 and Imageready CS2.
I think elements will work fine also. Its goin to take a few years to get the hang of it. I started in 7th grade making sites.

It's just so confusing, why is CSS so much better then HTML, and why is it so damn hard to put a picture and text on the same line WITHOUT MESSING UP EVERYTHING AHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You don't really need a book. http://www.w3schools.com is a good resource... I tought my self by actually looking at the html for websites then trying to emulate it... I wouldn't recommend that unless you like figuring things out for yourself. I may eventually try to get someone to help me make some flash tutorials on basic web design stuff for my site.

I always rely on books. With flash you cannot integrate it will php and mysql. Why waste your time with flash when you can do up a nice banner and have a wicked color scheme. Take a look at http://csszengarden.com and this NOT done with flash.

I know it cant be done with flash. I'm talking flash movies. :P With narration. I'd do a movie in another format, but not everyone can see every format. If they can view websites with a browser they should be able to access a flash player. Theres one for every major platform (Win, Mac, Linux). Also, I'm very familiar with Css Zen Garden. If I had the time I would redo my LCARS template wth xhtml and css. I could do some nice mouseovers using css and make the template look nice. ;)

Spock, I just realised you closed your site, that is a real shame, I always feel sad when something I have become used to for awhile goes away, or is about to go away. Just a sad thing, i guess.
