I'd like to simply change the background colour, text colours and add my own logo and top nav bar to each page.

With regard to the backgrounds and text, am I right in thinking that all I need to do is go through links.css and make my amends there?
That would be the easiest method.

(As an aside I read through the whole links.css document and attempted to track which instructions/colours etc related to which part of the site. Most of it was simple to tie together. However could someone tell me what the first three items relate to - 'no title', 'paragraph' and 'definition list')
no title -> means no title
paragraph -> sets paragraph alignments
definition list -> indents text

Regarding adding a common header to all the pages, I've seen reference to header.txt files (can't find them anywhere on my site), site_html.pl and site_html_templates.pl . There's also the template amends that are do-able with the Directory administration pages.
You have to create your own header.txt that includes common HTML codes for the top of the page. Same thing with a footer file, like footer.txt.

If someone could supply a non-techie, newby-speak explanation on site_html.pl and site_html_templates.pl it would be appreciated (and should probably go on FAQs)
Bobsie, the Links 2.0 Customization Forum Moderator wrote some easy to understand codes in a Thread titled something like headers and footers. If you use the forum search engine, and use the following search criteria:

1) Forum: Links 2.0 Customization
2) Keywords: header footer Bobsie
3) Search Options: And
4) Date Range: All posts
5) Hits: 300

You should be able to find relevant Threads and also the one that Bobsie provided the codes.
