hey there every one. im extremly new at this. however i just picked up the book.

my questions are. (im working with a downloaded template xhtml/css) i have the navagation buttons across the top home about contact ect. do each of those buttons have to have a new .html file attached for example would i create a about.htm and point a a href = about.htm ?

how does that work exactly i know with old html you would have a new file for each page. i would assume that would stay the same.

and also the template i downloaded has a small shout out or comment box along the side. how do i make that functional? all i have are the input codes on my index.htm and the styles does have the #comment reference but it is just for the font and alignment ect.

im sure these are extreme newb questions. but im just self teaching.

Yes, that's pretty close to what you need to do. You might have some path issues but each button should link to a different .html.

For some very basic help, check out the links in my sig below. They can all help you.
For more specific help, give us a link to your test site when describing your problem.
If you don't have a link, post your code in the forum. Please use the code tags,
- available with the # button in the post edit window.
This will wrap your code in a scroll box which greatly helps the readability of your post.
