Hi,

I was wondering if I could do a site check on my new creation,

http://blueodysseyvacations.com/

I redesigned the site from a table-based site, and it was truly a learning experience as it is also my first public site.

-- edit - forgot to add I checked it with Opera 8 (I think) and 9.2 - a new favorite browser!

I've checked it w/ FF2, IE7, and a few systems available with browsershots. I've also checked with IE6 and am using javascript to 'simulate' the fixed background images on most of the pages (it is jumpy with IE6 SP2 though). I did have it working with IE5.5 at one point, but somehow I can't get that going again, but was wondering if I need to? It's also broken with NS4.

Generally, I guess I really would appreciate any feedback on the site; the css; how I should/shouldn't handle less than IE5.5/NS; ANY feedback on a MAC as I have zero access to one, and anything I've missed Smile

I have validated (XHTML strict) and my own .css validates (with warnings about using mix-cased for colornames which I do - why do they call them out? Shock), but the external menu generation .css does not validate (only a couple of minor ie-specific thing-a-ma-jics).

Any feedback, again, greatly appreciated.
Regards,
Liz

Suffering from quite a bit

Suffering from quite a bit of classitis, see if you can cut down on the number of classes you're using.

And I wouldn't bother about IE5. It's dead Laughing out loud

afraid of that -

Hi Pineapple,

Thanks so much for taking a look - I know there's a few pages there. I did think that (you wouldn't know I read Zeldman's Web Standards!) and had so many one-zies two-zies, but across multiple pages, didn't want inlines, and on and on for excuses. Can I pick up some learned expertise on this?

I basically have 2 types of pages - the 3 "3 column" ones and single column ones (divided up into different "types" as well - itinerary types, basic info pages).

  • Would it be more beneficial for me to divide up those common style types into 3 seperate style sheets? I thought by putting most of the basic styles into one stylesheet, I'd have better performance because only one stylesheet would be loaded initially and cached for the duration for the other pages.
  • Would it be better just to put some of the very specific one-zie two-zie styles inline or in the head section?
  • Thanks again - I'd like to optimize this because I'm starting a new site and want to leverage any additional tips I can get!
