Redesign in progress

Firefox and Opera for windows are displaying about a 50px gap between your banner and top; whereas, IE6 displays about 10px.

Your copyright symbol should be © in your footer.

Also, you might want to obfuscate your email address, so you don't get a boat load of spam. Someone here sent me this link a while back, I now use it.

The design looks nice. Smile

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

yes, there was a gap indeed. Fixed that. And copyright, too.

I have used against spam a solution like this: 'name [ät] youraddress', but people seem to have difficulties with understanding this.

tnx for the link, very useful Smile

Something else I failed to mention; I noticed the border bellow and to the left of your 'search form' appears to be broken. The size difference is larger in IE6 compared to Firefox. Actually, the border does not extend past your search form in both browsers.

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

Nice work... What language is that on the site? I like th design concept. You don't see neutrals on the web enough IMHO.

Smile actually that border is not broken.
It's a illusion of border. The footer (if you download the .jpg and see) has this border... content bg doesn't have though.
At the beginning I thought I wont make a border-left at all, but then as the content bg has no border left I was thinking it's not a very good solution. So I gave sidebar a border. And with the margin-bottom and -top it has this look... (hope you understood what I meant).

And speaking of design - I made it with Photoshop, then cut out header, content bg and footer. Easy.
To be honest, it was my first ever out-of-the-template-made design. And it's the way I'm going to take in the future because I save time and it looks more like the whole.

http://consultgrupp.ee was made from template as well partially.

ricoschette,

I noticed that you used "strikeout" for your visited link? For example, after clicking "design by", it becomes crossed out. That is quite unusual. I think I prefer the traditional method.

If you want spam protection without confusing users, try writing out the email dynamically using Javascript (as in this tutorial).

yes, I have used this strike-through before... Well, of course it's more common just to use different color instead.
About spam, I don't know... not a single e-mail address I am using on the websites get any spam what-so-ever. But will check your link certainly.

Redesign in progress

I've made few changes...
Though haven't had much time to think about overall graphics and design.
And also played a little with flash/sIFR. There's so many fonts to choose from...

The other day when I discovered the Silktide Sitescore I found out that this website is at the 20.418th place in the world - :twisted:
http://www.silktide.com/report.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.koit.pri.ee

What a surprise considering that I only have links to the .doc files...
and titles.

Oh well, my own website - http://papilion-disain.com - is only at the 1.660.xxx place Laughing out loud

Interesting find though.
