Banners, logos, graphix I can't help you with.

Animated GIF's?

You can find an online generator for those.

You should understand a 'good' webpage vs a 'bad' one (colors, coding, links, etc). (Google 'bad webpage examples' for instance).

KISS (Keep it simple, stupid).

Try to limit anything 'fancy' to one or two things per page, not too many images b/c it'll load slow, not too many diff colors (pick ones in the same family), font options, no wallpapery-backgrounds in annoying patterns, a clear navigation menu on index.html...

What style do you want it in?
Something classic? Modern? Art Deco? Fancy-shmancy? Gothic? lol

What do you have already?
(You can email it if you need to).

Ok, then as your icons/list item markers, pick something from the game.

You can make your font style the same or close to the same font from the game.

Thumbnail screenshots with a click for a larger view?

Dunno, Chaos lol.

Maybe someone else will have some ideas, too.

I highly suggest putting in some high quality banners...make sure the "template" looks professional so you dont have your pictures or text randomly spread across the page. perhaps some audio...maybe a forum or live chat..something that makes a person want to come back to your site..

JSP :-)

Cool!

Can i PM you for some tips & hints. I'd like to learn a bit more about Java Server Pages.
(if fact i know nothing, zilch walu-walou about Java on Web-apps.)

and Blasix, is that server app really necessary to have Java on serverside ?
There are Apache modules i think ( not sure, just remembering by hearth)

Yeah sure you can!! But since currently i m just working on it, i guess i will be able to help you better when i have done my homework and finished my research...
And regarding Blazix you can also use Apache tomcat instead of that (also Weblogic and Websphere) but i think Blazix is cool, its only 1.5mb large but still powerful and acts as a standalone webserver for both windows and linux, i like that
