Sothink, this is not a forum for advertising your company.

Please do not spam us.

And you only have 111 HTML errors, including the lack of a doctype :roll:

hi,

no, we did not try to spam, but your thoughts on the site.

yes, a friend reported us the doctype thing, which I've reported to our webmaster. Thank you!

Apologies, but judging by your other two posts on this forum, it does seem like you're only here to advertise your product.

ANyway, you asked for a site check, so here goes.

I don't like the navigation in the top right, it's too thin and too hard to read.

I like the arrows indicating the dropdown menus, nice touch Laughing out loud

Your overall font-size seems too small, and you shouldn't be using a fixed width layout. When I resize the text, the columns get cramped - the main holder should expand to fit the text in.

Also, why do your news items open a new window?

You shouldn't be using tables either, or images in cells for the background of the news items.

From a design point of view, very professional - but from a CSS Design point of view, could do better Laughing out loud

I agree on this. I didn't even notice it until TPH said it was there.

Also, you really need to read this: http://www.hotdesign.com/seybold/index.html

Tables for layout and deprecated align attributes are probably the reasons TPH thought it was a spam attempt.

I'm really not a fan of tables. But I think the visual presentation is ok.

hi,

sorry for the previous two posts. This time we are really serious and seeking your opinioin on it.

For the top right nav and the font size, we have decided to improve them.

For opening a item in a new window, we will try to reduce the numbers of the items opened in a new window as few as possible. We think there is no nav menu on some pages or content, so open a new window and keep the old window will help visitors to surf our site more easily.

Thanks Triumph, I know the reason why you all asked us not to use tables now. Laughing out loud

I never embed any flash, unless i'm good at it:

Like the site as it's simple to navigate, again tabular layout asking for feedback on a CSS forum, mad man! Evil

Not bad though.

NOTE: The Hallowe'en card is nice, but you misspelt Hallowe'en. It has an apostrophe as you can see... Hallowe'en really means Hallowed Evening.

I see the site http://www.kuatrove.com.ar/ embeds Flash. Does that mean you are good at Flash? Wink

Thanks! However, Halloween is ok too, right? Lots of places use it.

Nice card, I like the embedding of the laughter in the music Smile
So why not start writing things different if that digs out more sense?
