Below is a brief example where I've done some (but definitely not all) of your CSS conversion for you. I would recommend that you check into some CSS tutorials to get a better understanding of how they work.

First, the CSS code (I've named my file test.css):

@charset "utf-8";
/* CSS Document */

#Body {
	background-color: #F0F;
	font-family: "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
	font-size: 12px;
}
#NavTable {
	border: none;
	padding: 0px;
	margin: 0px;
	width: 100%;
}
.title {
	text-align: center;
	font-size: 6em;
	font-weight: bold;
}
.menuItems {
	text-align: center;
	font-size: 5em;
}

Followed by the HTML page (aptly named test.html):

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
@import url("test.css");
-->
</style>
</head>

<body id="Body">
<table id="NavTable">
<tr><td>
<p class="title">Davina's Web Page</p>
<p class="menuItems"><a href="Family.htm">Family</a>&nbsp; |&nbsp; <a href="Friends.htm">Friends</a>&nbsp;
|&nbsp; <a href="Movies.htm">Interest</a>&nbsp; |&nbsp; </font>
<a href="Feedback.html">Feedback</a></p>
<p align="center">&nbsp;</p>
</td></tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Hope this helps. Sorry but I'm too tired and it's too late in the day for me to do your entire page for you. It should, at the very least, give you an idea of how CSS IDs and Classes work however. ;)

Hi Davina,

A few tips
-You really should understore your image names.
-Secondly, add them to a folder (images) - its just neater that way.

Lusiphur was on the right track, but since your bgs change with every page. Why dont you give your body ids. eg.

/* Themes */

#homepage {
	background-color: #F0F;
}

#family {
	background-color: #CFC;
}
..
<!-- Home page -->
    <body id="homepage">
        <!--msnavigation-->
        <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%">
..
<!-- Family page -->
    <body id="family ">
        <!--msnavigation-->
        <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%">

Also not sure if i would import. instead, in the head

<head>
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
        <title>Davina's Web Page</title>
        <meta name="Microsoft Border" content="t, default">
		<!-- Stylesheet -->
		<link rel="stylesheet" href="test.css"/>
    </head>

Ya, my website follows the alternate image path concept as indicated above.

As I said last night, I was just trying to give an 'idea' of how to do it, not be the definitive answer to their needs lol. It was far too late in the evening for me to be doing all their work for them ;)
