Tables

Setting up the Welcome page was simple—let's take a look at some of the more advanced tools and compose a homepage that provides an introduction to your Web site and allows the user to navigate to other pages. Go ahead and choose New from your File menu to start a new document. Now you're back to a blank page. Earlier you created some text and a link—there really wasn't any layout of the document other than centering the content in the viewers browser. The homepage should probably have a bit more content.

For the homepage, let's lay out the page with a navigation bar on the left side of the screen, and a content area to the right. There are a few ways to do this (and we'll get to them all, trust me), but the most common way of positioning elements is by using a table.
