I want to use Java to create a more professional look on my site but instead of downloading one from the net, I'd like to create my own.
Does anyone know how I would go about this?
Thanx for any replies

A professional look does not come from using Java or any of the other useful and usable web languages for that matter.

If you want a professional look, you need to spend some time in graphics design, colour scheme selection and, most important of all, in the page and site layout.

The information the site is presenting (goods for sale, services offered, information presented and so on) are the most important features of any site that expects to do well. You can achieve this end result using plain old fashioned HTML or any one of the other web page languages.

If you want to learn JavaScript there are loads of free resources on the web and a simple text editor like Notepad or Arachnophilia will do to write your code in.

Try these links for JavaScript learning material:

Your site layout and appearance in conjunction with its content carries far more weight than the vast majority of the JavaScript or DHTML bells and whistles you see.

Take a look at the BBC website for a professional looking site that does a wonderful job of presenting information to the public.
