my web site
www.telfordsteamrailway.co.uk
a) is based on Frames
b) uses tables for layout (virtual tour)
b) does not use CSS
c) desperately needs an overhaul

Never having used CSS I could do with some tips / pointers
to resources that could help me
1) improve my sites appearance
2) make it more 'user friendly'

get away from some of the deprecated HTML code towards XHTML

Ideas

Hi TsrWebmaster,
Here are some other forum topics which have links to tutorials etc.

Suggestions for your site.
Try to set the site up without frames.
Change the font to font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
Space out the links on the left, changing the line-hight may do this.
To me the yellow and brown paper backgrounds don't look good together, try using the brown paper for all frames.
In some places the text runs right up to the images, add a little margin to the imagesimg {margin: 10px}
Try changing the "Day out with Thomas" image to a transparent gif to remove the strong background colour.

Hope that helps a little, It should at least get you thinking. Smile

Ideas / suggestions please

Maybe put a little border round it, separate the two colours out?
