    Okay, to make a long story short I'm a Systems Admin, who had a few webpages land in my hands when a former employee separated from my company. We use asp pages, and I know how to build/edit a header.master file (which contains the nav bars, logos, and footer).

    My question is: Since I decided to build my own html site on my own to help aid my learning, aside from ASP header files, what would I use to fulfill the best practices for html5/xhtml - as far as creating a header page using dreamweaver??

    Firstly how big is this site? Is it worth starting afresh with a cms platform like Joomla or wordpress?

    If i get you right you have a website in tables? or is it css? I don't quite understand the question. Could you explain it a bit more so my noggin can understand ^^

    Depending on the navigation bar, you should use CSS to stylize the navigation bar and in some cases layout the navigation bar. But, if the navigation bar is too complex, you may want to create a layout in Photoshop, then stylize the bar using CSS.

    I was thinking of using a jquery "lavalamp" menu bar. should i go about making a layout.css file and just attach it to each new page I want to create?

    You don't have attach the CSS, but you do need to paste the line below within your HTML's <head> The CSS will remain in a file folder of it's own with a directory to your file in the HTML that will look like this:

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/your_css_file_name.css"/>

    The jquery will look similar:
    <script src="./js/jquery_name.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    I hope this helps.
