Could someone point me in the right direction to resources that will allow me to bulid a master page similar to this page in particular I wanted a gradiaent color (grey) left menu area and a rounded (only at the top left edge) content area.

Thanks In Advance

That site actually walks you through how to make the template...

http://www.expression-web-designer-h...s_template.htm

http://www.expression-web-designer-h...platePart2.htm

http://www.expression-web-designer-h...barstyling.htm

If you want to see how exactly he laid out his styles in this modified template view the stylesheet directly: http://www.expression-web-designer-h...terstyles3.css

Flipping that template into a MasterPage, as far as I can tell, is a trivial task. If you view the source of the template you want to duplicate you will find this div:

<div id="page_content">...</div>

Inside of this is where you would place your Main Content placeholder so your Master Page may look like this:

<div id="page_content">
<asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="server" />
</div>

Does this make sense?
