Do not leave a space between the 12 and px — it should look like this: “12px;”

Can we back up a minute? You say you are a beginner at HTML. It would make much more sense for you to begin with XHTML combined with cascading style sheets (CSS), which is the current method of building web pages.

A good basic book would help: I like to recommend Elizabeth Castro’s HTML, XHTML & CSS, which has a cookbook format. Alternatively, there are many sources of information on the web, but most articles cover one piece or another of the puzzle, and you are left to make your own sense of the bits and pieces.

The Sitepoint article “Rock Solid CSS Layouts” gives a decent overview; you can download the first three chapters of a book — HTML Utopia: Designing Without Tables Using CSS. After that, I guess you are meant to buy it. But it might be enough to get you started.

Beyond that, you can’t beat A List Apart for articles on many, many site-building topics.
