I want to change the layout of my personal fanfic site. What I currently have can be found at http://magical-worlds.us/scribblings/

I'd like my site layout to look something like this: http://moments.misplaced.co.uk/index1.php

I know what colors I want to use and I've already made myself a new banner for the header but I can't seem to find a good, clear tutorial that would go about showing me how to do all that. I only know basic html. The creator said she used css, div layers, tables and php to create the layout. I've tried visiting various css and php tutorial sites to teach myself but I can't find one that tells me how to go about writing a stylesheet step by step, much less create that particular layout. I've been browsing how-to websites all day and only ended up confused and frustrated.

Is there anyone who can walk me through how to do this or at least point me to a good tutorial website that dummies the process down so I can understand it? I use Mozilla Firefox so I need to know how to make it compatible with my browser too.

Mulder's Stylesheet Tutorial at Webmonkey is absolutely golden. I've been doing CSS for like two years, and still refer to that every time I open up my site for edits.
The other thing I would recommend is to view source on the site you like, copy it locally, then play around with it - break it, fix it - see how things are done.
If you get stuck, feel free to drop me a comment, or contact me on MSN Messenger. It's Winter vacation, and I actually have tiiiimeeee to play on the 'net again! :D

Thanks. I'm off to read them now. I still reserve the right to bug you if I get confused, though. :)
