Well, as I've almost finished stuffing all the content in (please don't say "why didn't you use a CMS?" long story... not my choice...) and I'm scared to ask...

can anyone try this on MAC for me?

Validated loads of pages, I'll be honest, not all though.

Works on IE and FF on PC...

(crosses fingers hard)

If it goes wrong, help greatfully accepted

it is my first "proper" CSS site, had a week to build it... Shock

Scared but please test on MAC...

Looks pretty good on PC. Just one suggestion I'd make: on the pages that have a submenu on the left, it'd be good if you could alert the user as to which page they're actually on with either a heading or a change of the link colour.

How to get help
Post a link. If you can't post a link, jsFiddle it.

Cheers.

I said that... in amongst the vague spec they wanted the "section" headings to remain constant... and no CMS Sad

How do you make "active" links change color... hmm, "a googling I will go.. a googling I will go... la la la la"

One method is to set an ID on the body tag for each page and then do something like this:

body#pageID a#link1 { color: something; }

Scared but please test on MAC...

I have tested it on Safari in OS Panther. I do not have IE Mac on my machine right now so I could not test with that browser.

Overall, looks good. Couple of questions...
• I am guessing that 'Academy', 'Gifts', 'Careers', and 'Creative Chefs' are not complete or not loaded because I get 'Page Not Found' along with a couple other pages like 'contact.'
• On the 'index.shtml', the left column is shorter than the other. All other pages, I see that the two left columns are equal.
• I notice that on most pages, those with lots of text are split up so we won't get a scrollbar. I like that idea. If that is the case, 'Terms and Conditions' does not show up that way. I have to scroll on that one.

Presentation is very nice. Navigation is simple and easy to follow.

Nice work.

Thanks! All of those are because, I'm still stuffing it in at 230am Sad

Design n stuff should be sorted though.

(Ta for left column height, sorted)

Looks odd in IE/Mac but I wouldn't worry much about that unless it is in the contract that it must work in IE/Mac.

Cheers for having a look.

I'm guessing this is because the first item "home" is inside a span class to hide it from the front page... hmmm, I ought to try n make it look at least useable.

Any ideas?
