One of my new year resolutions is to set up a website I've been saying I want to set up for ages. The problem: the last time I set up a website, CSS was in its infancy and I hand-coded static HTML files. I know what I want the thing to do, and I've tried doing my research, but all the various ways of getting there are doing my head in, so I'm looking for recommendations. Please explain things like I'm an idiot, because this is absolutely making me feel like one. [more inside]

Any opinions about programs such as Member Assembler, CSAware, Farmigo or DeliveryBizPro? [more inside]

I work at an internet store. When I look at the search terms used within our site's internal search engine there are a number of items and brands that are searched for, but with the words in reverse order. For example there are hundreds more searches for "Kanteen Klean" than there is for "Klean Kanteen". Likewise, there are many more searches for "curtain shower" and "case pencil" than there are for "shower curtain" or "pencil case". What is going on? [more inside]

I'm opening a retail store that will sell CDs, books, photographs and other music-related collectibles. We hope to open a web store concurrently and have found a web designer. I'm looking for advice about point-of-sale systems for our store, and in addition we are interested in linking the inventory in our retail store to our inventory for our web store. Our webstore is being developed using x-cart. Any recommened POS systems or vendors? Anyone set up a system like this recently?
