Hi One and All,

I have a bit of a problem my personal site is made up of tables ,I now with
to use CSS.

<!--News NTPP start -->
        <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=155 border=0 name="Server">
            <TD width=10 height=10><IMG height=20
src="files/box_corner_topleft.gif"   width=20></TD>
            <TD width=145 background="files/box_line_top.gif"></TD>
            <TD width=10 height=10><IMG height=20
src="files/box_corner_topright.gif"   width=20></TD>
            <TD width=10 background="files/box_side_left.gif"
            <TD vAlign=top width=145>
              <div align="left"><font face="Verdana" size="1>     CONTENT
GOES HERE  </font></div>
            <TD width=10 background="files/box_side_right.gif"
            <TD width=10 height=10><IMG height=20
src="files/box_corner_lowerleft.gif"   width=20></TD>
            <TD width=145 background="files/box_line_lower.gif"></TD>
            <TD width=10 height=10><IMG height=20
src="files/box_corner_loweright.gif"   width=20></TD>
        <!--News NTPP end -->

How would I go about converting this as the site 3 columns made up of 5/6 of
the above on the left 1 main one for the page content in the centre then 2/3
on the right.
I have a very basic understanding of how things work but this is sending me
round the bead.

Start from scratch. Really. Converting a poorly designed page to use
another technology is worse than wasted effort: it is virtually certain
that you will encounter serious technical problems, even if you know HTML
and CSS well, and you don't.

You are trying to use pixel-exact rigid layout that relies on keeping font
size constant (typically absurdly small). CSS won't cure that disease.
On the contrary, CSS will help you to make even more damage that way.

Try to find a good book or web site on web authoring. You'll need it.

Hire a web design who's really good at math.

Contrary to popular belief, it is believable.
