    If anybody can help, I am wondering where I can get a complete set of files for really cool websites.

    That way, I can make relevant changes to them to fit my own material.

    Thanks!

    Go to any website page you want, click on View -> Source and you'll have a full copy of the source code for that page appear. Copy, paste and edit to anything you want.

    If the site is database drive you don't see all the files.
    The thing at which you look (view source) on these sites is generated each time using the database and php or other scripts.

    You can download open source Content Distribution Systems on the net, like www.joomla.org

    I dumped all my fancy designs and original artwork and switched to wordpress.

    I'm currently thinking about modifying a theme, but the default theme is quite ok with a few minor graphical enhancements.
    see for yourself.

    I think one of the best designs I have ever seen is this one:

    simple. to the point.
