I created this site that complies CSS & Web Standards related news feeds from sources around the net. At first it just started out as something I was going to use myself but figure other people might like it. Also this is my first shot at a tabless design.

Nice looking site. The only thing I'd nitpick about is that the little red crosses look like you should be able to close those boxes.

Yeah, I really wanted to do something with those "X"s. I hovered over them expecting at least some color swaps! Sad

Probably used a background image with diagonal stripes on it. Wink

Hi rikcat,

Your site looks very nice. I noticed when the page was loading, that your rounded corner tops are #e3eaea instead of the white background. The background is showing through because the image corners are transparent. Smile

This is my big chance . . . yep, I blew it . . .

Maybe that's his/her way of giving you credit.

The css thief moved the site to the parent folder. Smile

Here is the "thief"

Dear all,

First of all I would like to make clear that I'm the only one using this page (http://intranet.cclair.fr/nico). This page includes all the sites I visit often, you can check the old version at http://intranet.cclair.fr/nico/backup. And no, I didn't change the adress after reading this forum, the folder "new" was just for testing.

Since a few months I got very interested in the use of CSS and XHTML to make "valid" sites. I would like to thank the creator of Don't Meet Your Heroes, for designing this collection of usefull links and articles.

The plan was to redesign the layout, but with the same CSS styles. Do you have any problem with that? If so, I will create a new page from scratch.

Please let me know...

With kind regards,

Nicolas Koenig

ps: all my excuses for my poor knowledge of the beautiful english language

It's always nice to ask first before nicking someone's hard work. Smile

I'm sure if you do ask permission will be given along with the requirement of credit for the work.

Cool site

I like this site so much, that i am planning to use your site as an example for my own site! (No i will NOT copy the site!!)

I made a non-table site myself, but yours looks way better. HEY i am a NOOB! Shock

It is a very good way to learn CSS, just building from scratch with good sites as an example!

Gonna add my site for a review of you guys!
