What code have you got already? Have you learnt any HTML or CSS?

Right now this is my HTML

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN">
	<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
	<style type="text/css">
	body {
	background-color: #999999;
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

<div id="banner"><h1>Sphinxter's webpage</h1></div>

<!-- Site navigation menu -->
<ul class="navbar">
  <li><a href="index.html">Home</a>
  <li><a href="Register.html">Register</a>
  <li><a href="downloads.html">Downloads</a>
  <li><a href="contact.html">Contact us</a>
  <li><a href="screenshot.html">Screenshots</a>
  <li><a href="videos.html">Videos</a>
  <li><a href="fourms.html">Fourm</a>

<!-- Main content -->

<p>This is my webpage, this will be a webpage for a game soon but i am just practicing on how to create a website using HTML...
<div class="boxed">
	This is inside a box, does this work?


<!-- Sign and date the page, it's only polite! -->
<address>Created by Sphinxter</address>


And here is the CSS

body {
	padding-left: 11em;
      font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman",
          Times, serif;
    color: black;
    background-color: #888888 }
	  ul.navbar {
	list-style-type: none;
	padding: 0;
	margin: 0;
	position: absolute;
	top: 3em;
	left: 1em;
	width: 132px;
	height: 63px;
	h1 {
    font-family: Helvetica, Geneva, Arial,
          SunSans-Regular, sans-serif }
		  ul.navbar li {
    background: #cccccc;
	border: 1px solid black;
    margin: 0.75em 0;
    padding: 0.6em;
    border-right: .5em solid black
.boxed {
	padding: 0.6em;
	margin: 0;
	border: 2px solid black;
	color: white;
#banner {
	margin:0 auto;
	Height: 125px;
	border: #ff0000;
	background: #000000;
	font-size: 18px;
	text-align: center;
	padding-right: 10px;
	padding-left: 10px;
  ul.navbar a {
    text-decoration: none }
  a:link {
    color: black }
  a:visited {
    color: #123456 }
  address {
    margin-top: 1em;
    padding-top: 1em;
    border-top: thin dotted }

I would like to change the nav bar so it is horizontal below the banner and above the body, how would i go about doing that?
