For what you are describing you simply need a one column template that you are basically going to gut.
Regarding your HTML question. You'd need to know HTML or have some one code something up for you.

I'm trying to do a newsletter that contains two types of bullet points. One is the solid bullet point. The other is the circle bullet point. For the circle bullet points I am using <ul> html code. I cannot use <ul> code for the solid bullet points because it puts too much space between my bulleted points. SO instead I opted to use • and/or •. In both instances as soon as I put in my bullet points in the html code view area and save and preview those solid bullet points immediately revert to asterisks! How do I get around this? I do NOT want asterisks I want bullet points!
There are two FAQs related to parsing errors. They are 3270 and 2775. I would suggest you check these out to see if they help you solve the parsing problem. You can find the FAQs by clicking on the "Help & Support" tab near the top of this page, then click on the "Frequently Asked Questions" link and search by the FAQ number.
Before posting, I searched though previous posts to see if my issue could be resolved. I do not use skype. I do not have the paste with formatting box selected. None of the previous parsing posts are of help to me. That is why I have posted.
FAQs 3270 and 2775 are worthless and are of no help at all. I am still getting parsing errors. I copied and pasted my w3 validated strict XHTML code, my w3 validated CSS and still get errors. Yes, line numbers are noted in the error message - but of course the code lines are not numbered!)
