Hi all,

I wish I had known about this forum when I was trying to change my site from table to CSS.

Please take a look and all comments, suggestions etc are welcome http://www.virtuoffice.com.au

Thanks in advance

There is not enough contrast

There is not enough contrast between the letters and the backgrounds. The text is too small and the layout gets skinnier when you increase the text size. It doesn't validate.

Other than that it looks nice.

Dificulty with size of print and floats

Thanks for your comments.

I had settled on this size of print because I am trying to use floats and center everything on the page. I guess I still need to work on this.

This part seems to be a bad ideamargin: 0 15em 0 15em; As the text size increase the space for it decreases. It's a funny effect that I'm sure you didn't intend. Smile

I agree. I seem to remember

I agree. I seem to remember using that to make the centre column centered but if I do that then it is not really a float. My aim is to center all columns on the page. Using the margin sizes makes the same amount of room either side of my page no matter what which is not what I am wanting either.

I will need to go back to the drawing board to see why I used this as a fix because I know I had problems with centering everything on the page.

Stretching images is a bad

Stretching images is a bad idea. You should use overlaps.

You probably need to add a width to the block level item being centered. I'd also validate your html and css if you want things to actually work properly.

hi nerak, maybe you should

hi nerak,

maybe you should use a higher resolution to
your main logo. The page looks good in FF
but a little bit funny in IE6 on win 2000.
The blue background of the "So much to do, ..."
"floats" under the google-stuff. In Opera 9
the "virtuoffice.com.au"-option field is far
on the right side.

Site does not degrade

Site does not degrade particularly well and the image heading.jpg moves around from page to page.

Try using:
#container { margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; }
Replace #container with the name of your containment div and it should center in IE and FF.
