How honest would you like us

How honest would you like us to be?

While not wishing to appear negative this generator seems rather limited, the symbiotic nature of CSS and (X)HTML is a fairly complex and your generator seems to only account for a limited scope in terms of CSS properties, but maybe I didn't spend long enough playing with it but it wasn't overly apparent how I'd create an actual structure I couldn't figure out how to get a class name to apply to a div?

Your up against some stiff competition in this area check out the layout generator created by this forums owner or the generator on P.I.E

As for valid html it's not a great claim when using a loose trans DTD you actually have invalid code in the use of closing slashes on your empty elements which are not required to be closed when coding to a 4.01 Doc Type and use of the font tag really should be removed.

Advertise?

Was this to comment that there's too many links on the links page or do I advertise the site itself?

There are no paid or affiliate ads on the site. Reciprocal linking is the only way one can get listed in some directories.

~and/or~

Google ads are running...The site is only a few weeks young.

Thank you for the input!

The generator is not meant to be a knock down all out super css creator. You've hit the purpose right on the head "limited scope in terms of CSS properties". Its meant to be as simple as possible for quick definitions yet just a tad more complete than most other generators out there.

Its not meant to compete with CSSCreator's Layout generator or P.I.E.'s generator. Smile

I did use closing tags on some of the line break tags and I'm guessing I haven't checked all my pages. - thanks - I forgot about them.

By "advertise much", I just

By "advertise much", I just meant it seemed a bit of an odd place to link to your CSS creation site - you know, on a forum for a CSS generator Tongue
