I have my html page but when I go to view on the browser and click "no style", it's all together in one big bunch. How do I make it where when someone decides not to use style on the page, it still somewhat looks normal?
The best way is to use 100% valid, 100% semantic HTML
Use the W3C HTML validator at http://validator.w3.org/ to get a completely clean error free page and then you should find that elements flow down the page correctly.
It'll look pretty plain and basic, but it should still make sense and be readable.
W3C validator doesnt work because it freaks out because it doesnt have my css stylesheet when it validates it. how can i organize it myself without it looking like crap when its on a page thats set to no style.
I think you should take some time to upload some of your code so we can see it.
You've asked loads of questions that are impossible to answer. How about some effort to learn how to use Doctype.com properly?
