I must be blind because I never saw this part of the css forum before :?

Okay, this afternoon I published the new Bushwhacker Climbing Club site. Please advise.

When I validate it passes, but I get an error,
Character Encoding mismatch! I gotta figure that out still.

Thanks in advance,
Doxey

I see no problem with the character set. It is utf-8, so be sure that if your editor is actually using utf-8, it doesn't prepend the document with a BOM (Byte Order Mark). It's unnecessary for utf-8 and it throws IE into quirks mode.

Everything looks good, except for the nav column. I really hate for links to change size when hovered. It causes the column to twitch. Stick with a color change or adding an underscore.

You might add a photo or two to each page showing members doing the things members do. It's a club site, make it personal.

cheers,

gary

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

Gary, thanks much. Yup, I ripped the size change on hover. Better this way I agree.

And yeah, the site needs photos - comin' up!

Any other input?

I think separating the content background color from the body background color might make it stand out a little more.

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

my only suggestion would for it to be seperated from the background. Either a border or a different background color on your content.

looks good other then that.
