How to Convert a Slick PSD Design to XHTML/CSS

Our #content Area

Our main content area has a lot of content to handle so I am going to take it into two parts. The first part you will learn how to handle the about us/others say section and the second part you will learn to handle the four separate services section.

About Us/What Others Say

In this section you will learn how to code two separate div‘s that each take up 50% of the container width (with padding/margins). Each one will have a heading, followed my a short one or two sentences wrapped in paragraph tags.

<div id="about_us">
	<h3>A little about us...</h3>
	<p>We are a full service production company that is your one stop needs, either it be family photographs, a college sport exposure video, senior pictures or.</p>
</div>
<div id="others_say">
	<h3>What others think...</h3>
	<p>When I first came to Johnny for a first time job I was a bit nervous n how the service would be, but after the first job and how smooth it went i’ll never go anywhere else.

	</p>
</div>

Available Services Section

In this section we will code up 4 identical(besides text) divs with a class of .box that will take up about 25% of the container each. They will contain a basic picture preview, heading, then some text.

<ul id="services">
	<!-- Photography -->
	<li>
		<img src="style/images/service_preview_1.gif" alt="placeholder" />
		<h4>Photography</h4>
		<p>Praesent imperdiet nulla at tortor. Phasellus non lectus eget massa rhoncus consequat. Donec lectus ligula, posuere vel, semper a, posuere in, orci. Praesent imperdiet nulla at tortor. Phasellus non lectus eget massa rhoncus consequat. Donec lectus ligula, posuere vel.</p>
	</li>

	<!-- Commercials -->
	<li>
		<img src="style/images/service_preview_2.gif" alt="placeholder" />
		<h4>Commercials</h4>
		<p>Praesent imperdiet nulla at tortor. Phasellus non lectus eget massa rhoncus consequat. Donec lectus ligula, posuere vel, semper a, posuere in, orci. Praesent imperdiet nulla at tortor. Phasellus non lectus eget massa rhoncus consequat. Donec lectus ligula, posuere vel.</p>
	</li>

	<!-- Sports -->
	<li>
		<img src="style/images/service_preview_3.gif" alt="plceholder" />
		<h4>Sports</h4>
		<p>Praesent imperdiet nulla at tortor. Phasellus non lectus eget massa rhoncus consequat. Donec lectus ligula, posuere vel, semper a, posuere in, orci. Praesent imperdiet nulla at tortor. Phasellus non lectus eget massa rhoncus consequat. Donec lectus ligula, posuere vel.</p>
	</li>

	<!-- Exposure Videos -->
	<li>
		<img src="style/images/service_preview_1.gif" alt="placeholder" />
		<h4>Exposure Videos</h4>
		<p>Praesent imperdiet nulla at tortor. Phasellus non lectus eget massa rhoncus consequat. Donec lectus ligula, posuere vel, semper a, posuere in, orci. Praesent imperdiet nulla at tortor. Phasellus non lectus eget massa rhoncus consequat. Donec lectus ligula, posuere vel.</p>
	</li>
</ul>

Finally the #footer

Now, we are onto the footer, it will take just about the same layout as the services section but it also has a small copyright & back to top underneath it.

<ul id="footer-widgets">
