Default Rewriting a web site

Rather than getting into particular details or exact code, I am explaining what I am doing overall. I am rewriting an existing, older web site (over 5 years old) using Dreamweaver MX 2004 and CSS, instead of FrontPage 2003 with extensions.

Perhaps I might retain some of the graphical concepts from the FP version, but if I use CSS, changing them should be easy. I expect to use only HTML and CSS, and no JavaScript, ASP, or the like. I might use PHP if there is a really good reason, but otherwise not.

I want the effects made possible by the anchor pseudo-classes for menus and navigation, and I want a two-column design with a fixed left navigation column and a fluid right content column, with a consistent header for all pages. There may or may not be a footer image.

Here are two images to show the overall layout. The first image shows the existing web page, and the second image shows an attempt at the menu using CSS techniques.
