Hey
I've been set a task at college to create a website for a local bed and breakfast, i've created a relatively pretty site template in Photoshop and sliced it up as i want it but now i've exported it all into seperate DIV's with each image inside of a different DIV i'm not entirely sure what to do next, i'm sort of out of inspiration.

Basically what i'm asking is can someone please give me a slightly better understanding of the steps that i should be taking when making a website and whether i should stray from using Photoshop's export to HTML option.

Thankyou, Ollie.

Well are you asking how to arrange the website as far as tableless design? Using photoshop isnt bad if you can slice and everything looks good and lines up, the only problem you might have is spacing and the amount of content on the page. For instance if you have a header with a bar at the bottom for links or navigations, you might run into positioning problems.

Also if you add alot of content you may run into the problem of keeping text from overflowing an image.

as far as getting started here are some great links http://exitfegs.co.uk/Sources.html

Well photoshop exported everything into DIV's with ID's and an internal style sheet specifying where each DIV must be placed, each DIV contains an image within it and so cannot really hold any other content realistically without screwing everythin within it up. i was just wandering how web developers create such rich looking websites from scratch without slicing from photoshop.
