2. Web designers - Is there a better way to layout pages?
The layout looks fine. Do not use frames they are outdated and bad design practice. Use external style sheets so you do not have to go back and edit every single page every time you change something. For your content if you do not wanna get into using databases and server side technology, you may want to look into using Ajax to dynamically load content into a page.
3. How much do web designers make?
It really depends from your expertise. The more you know, the more you can charge. There is really no limit, if you focus and can find high-level clients and you are offering high level services (not only building a website..) But getting results your clients want and deliver - this requires more marketing, usability, ux and conversion experience. If you want a better answer, you should add some detail to the question. But this is my thinking about going with business thinking approach, where you not only work ALONE, but start working in team, hire other freelancers, have a small agency. Then you can scale - What Programming Language Should I Learn in 2015?.

7. Whats the best spring trend so far for 2011?
Honestly fashion trends is something that replays over and over again every time. Designers always take something from the past to make it look new like 2 years ago the 80's look was in and u saw girls wearing the gloves, skirts with colored stockings. Thats why me personally I do not follow what other ppl wear b/c I do not like looking the same as everyone else so if its cute I will buy it if not then I wo not . In the end it works 4 me b/c I always get strangers saying how nice my outfit is and where did I buy it. But 2 answer your question crop tops are in (shirts that show your stomach), the color orange is in, the 70s look is in, wide pants legs are in, the military look as always is in. etc
8. Are companies who only hire designers who are also programmers missing out on better designers?
I think the most important thing is not so much that your designers can code but that your design team can communicate with your engineering team. Without having at least some CS or engineering background (and the analytical horsepower that's highly correlated with that), a designer is going to have trouble understanding what the engineers are saying they want to build or why something is difficult, and likewise he/she is likely to have trouble using sufficiently precise language to express what is important to engineers. I do not think all of your designers need to be able to do this, necessarily, but your design leaders and most interaction-focused designers definitely do. Otherwise, if a designer can/wants to implement his/her own designs, that's great. There's no doubt in my mind that a huge reason that Quora developed a fairly full-featured site so quickly is that Rebekah prototypes in code, and that dramatically cuts the total resource cost of a feature.
