I'm trying to create my first website, and I want to know how to create a side bar (navigarion bar), so when you click on it, it directs you to another page. I know how to make it do that, but I can't make it have a different color from the background one. Here's a bit of my code. Please explain to me how to make the sidebar have a different color from the background, and how to make the actual background (where my main body is written) as picture. (.jpg or .gif image)

<div class='full-header' style='padding-top:5px'>
<div style="text-align: center;">

<div style='float:right; text-align:right; width:15%;'>Saturday, March 19, 2011</div>
<table style='width:100%;padding:0px;'>

<table bgcolor="#8AFB17">

<td style="width:170px;" valign='top' class='side-border-left'><div style='width:100%;padding:0px;'>

<div class='scapmain' style='text-align:center;height:14px;'><STRONG><H4>Fact File</H4></STRONG></div>

<div class='side-body'>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<img src='Milford Track.jpg' WIDTH="140" HEIGHT="120" alt='Milford Track' title='Milford Track' />&nbsp;<br />
<li class='navlink'> <a href='Population.html' class='side'>Population</a></li>
<li class='navlink'> <a href='Climate.html' class='side'>Climate<br />
<li class='navlink'><a href='Natural Attractions.html' class='side'>Natural Attractions</a></li>

<li class='navlink'> <a href='Shopping Suggestions.html' class='side'>Shopping Suggestions<br />
<li class='navlink'> <a href='Special events.html' class='side'>Special Events</a></li>
<li class='navlink'> <a href='Did you know?' class='side'>Did you know...?</a></li>
<td valign='top' class='main-bg'><div class='open_table'>

<div class='main-body'>

<div style="text-align: center;"><class="main-text">
<Body bgcolor="#FFFF00">

<DT><STRONG>Milford Sound</STRONG>
<DD><A HREF="#Scenic Daytime Cruise">Scenic Daytime Cruise.</A>

To do any of those, and anything else regarding what the page looks like (rather than what it says or what it does) you should use CSS.

You'd be using backgroud-color: and background:image for what you mentioned.
