    Hi friends
    i am planning to develop a simple static website for which i would like to know what are the steps to be taken.
    Below are the steps which i took. Wanted to know if i am on the right track or not
    1) made simple html files with the content
    2) saved all the html files and images in a single folder in my desktop
    3) run the html files in internet explorer
    i have not used any css files to make the formatting, all formatting are done separately in each html file. Is that the right way for formating? I am facing problem with alignment also.
    Please give your valuable insights on this.
    Thanks

    Those are the very basic steps.

    You don't have to put everything in a single folder.
    Maybe putting your photos in their own folder would help your organize better?
    By using one CSS file, you can change the layout on ALL pages simply by
    editing that one file. Otherwise, you'll be editing every page.

    And you now need to upload your files to a webhost?
    Or is this only a website you want to have on your PC (locally)?

    Thanks for the reply.
    My plan is to host it finally. But only after everything looks perfect.
    Is there any problem in using so many tables in the page?(
    i have 2, 3 tables within the first table) IS it a good approach? if not wat is the best way in its place?
    Thank you

    First of all, you have to explain that what type of website you want to create if it is dynamic then you should learn some good tools like Flash so that you can create a very good design of your site but if you want to create a static website then just visit the following site, you can create a very good but simple website.. the website is as follows:

    w3schools.com

    You will see some very good tips step by step with some very good examples in this website...

    I would put the images in an images folder also use a css file for the main layout instead of 1 for each page. You may want to start off with some sketches to get an idea of how you want to lay this site out first. And use CSS instead of a bunch of nested tables to build your layout. After you finish the site you probably want to check it out in the different browsers IE, Firefox and Safari. Adobe even has a browser lab that shows you how the site will look in older browsers.
