    If you know HTML/CSS well, then you really don't need to "pick apart" PHP in order to design your own custom design.

    What editor are you using? Have looked at the growing list of free themes.wordpress.net/? Downloading one of them and modifying it to suit your purposes is a good place to start.

    Another good place to start is reading about codex.wordpress.org/Templates, codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags, codex.wordpress.org/Category_Templates and codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop.

    You really may have to wait more than 20 minutes before bumping. You just took yourself out of the "posts with no replies" list that many volunteers use as a starting place.
