As always, I welcome and am grateful for any suggestions or observations.

http://www.horseink.com/tpf/index.html

Validates, displays (mostly) as it all should in Mac FF/ O/ Safari and even Mac IE5.2 Shock I've checked it in Virtual PC/XP2/IE6 and the only thing that is off are the top and bottom "boxes" at left, which display narrower than the navigation on my gear. But I can't figure that out... Evil

CSS validates as far as errors; I've got to go back and put in bgs still, so there are a few warnings. :roll:

Thanks very much!

Wendy

Site check, please, esp. Windows <and esp. IE7!>

Checks out OK in FF 1.5, Opera 8.5 and IE6 on Windows. I'm assuming that the blue stripe of the background's not s'posed to match up exactly with the blue stripe in the content area because it's dropped down by the same margin in all three browsers.
The only other thing I'd point out is that you need a space between the full stop and the 'More news...' in your breaking news box.

my only suggestion would be to take a look at your site with CSS turned off.

The way you have the <h> it doesnt make sense.
lemme know if you dont see what i'm talking about.

Example: "Phillip Dutton" is way smaller then "Latest News". I would think you would want your logo/name/title to be the biggest.

Also (and i am probably wrong so correct me if i am) but semantically I would think that <h1> should be prior to <h2>

but that's just my 1/3 of a cent.

Tyssen: yup, that's the way it's supposed to be, but sounds like you think it looks weird, so maybe it shouldn't be! It was meant to look like the content was floated a bit above the bg. Hey - this guy's one of your countrymen, btw....

Deuce: You're absolutely right. 1. I need to sort out some image replacement for the header, which I will do. 2. And yes, the order of the <h>s is wonky and not semantically correct, because of no image replacement text. Will fix.

Hey, if this is all you guys can find, life is good! Wink

Thanks very much for your trouble Laughing out loud

I would add some sort of shadowing then. Without a shadow it just looks like it is out of place. should add shadow to the right and bottom.

you're almost up to a whole penny worth of my thoughts!!!!!

Or maybe increase the offset a bit further. At the moment it kinda looks like a mistake because it's so close. Increasing the gap may make it look like a deliberate design decision.
