    Once you have learned how to define your own classes in CSS, what you could do is take out the style related attributes in your table/td tags.

    Such as
    HTML Code:
    <table width="100%" border="2">
    Becomes
    HTML Code:
    <table class="tblclass">
    With this CSS
    HTML Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    table.tblclass
    {
      border: 2px solid black;
      width: 100%;
    }
    </style>

    I know how CSS works. I just can't figure out how to get the navigation section of the webstie to look the same using CSS instead of tables-the links (Overview, Services, Steel Framing, etc.) with the diamonds splitting the links.

    Any ideas on navigation?

    The best way would be to assign a class to all the menu links that sets a background image that doesn't repeat that is the diamond. The only one that *doesn't* get this image is the first one, that way all the others have an image at the beginning. Then make their width be set, and you should be good.

    CSS allows you huge control of almost any element. One of the most helpful things about CSS is what it can do with unordered lists.

    Go there and see what's possible. You'll be blown away I think...

    That site is pretty rough anyway... I think you'd be better starting from scratch....

    It's often not feasible to transition a site from tables to pure styles because the two concepts aren't compatible. Tables are used to position items within a grid of a fixed size. CSS means you can put an element wherever you want on the page.
