Hi there, I've worked with web design on and off as a hobby for about a year now. I can't seem to figure out how to make my page look like this =

This was done in excel, and I want it to look just like that - with the grid look in the background. Any pointers or solutions would be much appreciated. Thank y'all!

Well for starters i would take a look at some tutorials and understand how HTML and CSS works.

Here are a few links

http://www.w3.org/Style/Examples/011/firstcss.en.html

OR im sure you can google something.

Then create your background in photoshop - You can simply create a repeatable background in photoshop to duplicate this "excel table look"

Then really all you need to do is create a div, center it horizontally, and add your text in the appropriate place.

I mean, you really just need to know the basics of HTML and CSS to be able to get this site off the ground - but no one is going to create the site from scratch for you, generally this site is to help with problems for existing sites or sites in current development.
