Hi all

I am very new to web design and took the bold step to do the whole thing in code rather than using a WYSIWYG editor.

It seems to work in all browsers but there is an issue in IE9 (I cant check it when building as i use XP and therefore cant run IE9). The issue is with the image boxes at the bottom. There is a gap and one box is pushed to the next line. It works in compatibility mode.

URL is www.tregrillfarmcottages.co.uk

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, this is my first post.

Thanks

Paul

I think the slideshow of

I think the slideshow of images is too big and takes up way too much screen estate, I think it would be better if it butted up against the top and your logo floated on top?

Also, the menu buttons seem too small.

You also have a huge wall of text under the menu - this should be broken down into separate paragraphs so it's easier to read.

Good start, keep up the good work!

Thanks

Thanks for the comments. I built the site to a design layout by someone trained in design for digital media. I do agree with your comments however.
One thing i struggle with is placing elements on top of each other. i understand the principal of the z-index, but in practice I have trouble layering elements. Don't know why but it just doesn't click. i could make the logo part of the images, which does mean I don't have the issue of it disapaering due to the changing colour behind the logo.
As for the block text, that is going to be re written so I will change it's layout then.

Cheers

Paul
