Looks like XHTML to me and your doc type should be on the first line of code; not the second.
This is causing your page to run in Quirks mode which confuses browsers and may lead to performance & rendering problems.
Finally, validate your HTML & CSS code as you have some errors that need fixing.
Overall, a good effort.

As other users have mentioned, Web is much different from Print Design, and needs to be flexible as it is viewed in all different ways. As a designer, I like to reference different web design blogs for inspiration, and I personally feel that this helps train your eye for designing for web. A great blog is Web Design Ledger (http://webdesignledger.com/category/inspiration). Also, the programs I utilize to develop and design for Web are Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, and Edge Animate Preview 7. I used to use Fireworks a lot but found that I preferred the interface of Photoshop more as it is a program I use more often. Also, Illustrator is great to have for creating SVG images, which are becoming increasingly popular with the presence of Retina display on iPhones, iPads, and now the newest Macbook.
I hope this helps! You have a lot of great advice here already! I just thought I would throw in my two cents. ; )
Hey there are a lot web hosting company. But you must always choose a good one. Similarly, I also tried a website called http://www.llt-group.com which helped me a lot for making my website even better like never before. Try this!
I saw this thread when I was looking for finding the most ideal program or edotpr to use in Web Design. I have been going to school and I have learned all the basics of Web Design but have had trouble creating profesional looking sites. A fellow student turned me on to Adobe Muse. I have found the program very easy to use and can say my site looks a thosand times better since I started using it. Problem is that Muse does all the coding for you, which might be a detriment to me at this point. Should I be continuing to the hard coding myself until I can create a site that looks professional or are programs like Muse becoming more popular. I want to one day find a job as a web designer and want to do as much as I can to be appealing to a company or a potaential client.
MU is OK for hobby sites and non-coders who just want to get the best results they can without looking at code. As such, you're limited in what you can do. For example, you couldn't use MU to build a CMS, blog or e-commerce site because it can't support server-side programming and databases.
If you want a career in web development, you need to be working with pro-level software like Dreamweaver and learning everything you can about server-side technologies and SQL databases. That's where the money is because most businesses these days have database driven web sites.
