    I'm currently designing a webpage with a blog, community, and a set of experimental websites, and I want to have a launch page for it. How would I go about making one like this:

    SITE LOGO
    --THIN LINE--
    ICONS (are greyed out when not moused over, and full color when moused over)
    --THIN LINE--
    AREA DESCRIPTION (when one of the icons is moused over) or "Hello there!" TEXT

    This would all be in the center of the page on a white background.

    Whoever answers, thanks.

    Are you looking for software suggestions? Or are you asking someone to code a page into what you described for you?

    I'd suggest using a Dreamweaver trial, or iWeb.

    Neither apps are able to do what I described, so no; all I'm asking for is someone's help in coding the page.

    Dreamweaver can do it.
    Through the use of rollovers.

    Hopefully you mean CSS rollovers -- JS rollovers are so very.....web 1.0 ;)

    It can also do the text change under the icons right?

    I don't mean to come off the wrong way, but it looks like you're diving right in without so much as the basic knowledge of things like html. You should run through a couple of tutorials and get the basics down, at the very least.

    I happen to know HTML quite well, but I have almost no experience on things such as this..

    In my opinion Launch pages are highly annoying and best avoided, forward the site to the blog and have a link to the other sites at the top or something, like iWeb does ;).

    Okay, so I ditched the start page idea and grabbed a copy of WordPress from my host, installed a skin, and started the first of many site prototypes.

    Click here and either look around or make a critique, please.
