Either I’m confused or you’re confused :). You don’t ‘style’ a page with php. All the normal HTML style rules apply. You just need to either update your .css file and include the class statements with HTML tags (

for example) or just with the style attribute directly.

cheers mate makes more senses but im still stuck on how to actually do that lol

I suggest reading through this web page:
It’s provides the basics for setting up a css stylesheet and tying it into your webpage.

On a side note you might also go and install the firefox add on firebug. It is a tool for debugging web pages. You can use the inspect function to select a particular page element and it will display the style elements associated with it. very very handy.
Best of luck
