Hi, I am kinda new to designing web pages, know all the basics. Does anyone know a good/free site and application to learn and build more advanced web pages from??

That's kind of a tough question and it certainly depends on a number of variables. Here are a few sites I visit more often:

Semantics

http://www.w3c.org
http://www.webdevout.com
http://digg.com/search?section=all&s=html

CSS

http://digg.com/search?section=all&s=css
http://www.csszengarden.com
http://www.positioniseverything.com
http://www.fiftyfoureleven.com/weblog/web-development/css

Browser Compatibility

Ajax

http://www.ajaxian.com
http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/AJAX:Getting_Started
http://digg.com/search?section=all&s=ajax

Hope some of these help :)

If you need sites that meet a more refined criteria, just let us know what type of sites you want in particular.

Great question and one I wish I had asked back when I was starting out :)

Good luck,

Chrelad
