Hello
I am trying to convert this [url=http://www.templateworld.com/zero/in_action/jet_30/] website template[/url], but am simply unable to to do this. I have no knowledge whatsoever in css and limited knowledge in html. I am decent with computers in general though. How can I accomplish this?

Hi theharshone

I have just launched an SS tutorial site with a tutorial on turning a template into an SS theme. Check it out here:

http://www.ssbits.com/building-a-theme-from-a-static-template/

In general its always useful to have some knowledge of CSS, so if you get some time have a look through this site:

Hope that helps
