Hi all,

I'm at the design stage of a web site and before I present these designs to the client I wanted to ask you guys if you think I'll have any problems using css to style the attachments.

The site HAS to meet AAA recommendations, but I'll do this through another style sheet - if that's possible.

My main concern is that the structure of the site will flow ok when all the positioning etc is taken away for people have css switched off.

cheers,
ed209

Design Stage

Yeah, that should work out to be quite an easy and fun thing to do in CSS . . . however, I'm not sure about the submenu. TO be honest, I dislike it as you've only got three things on the facilities page and you can see them all.

Also, I dislike the menu at the left, the text seems too big, and it kinda sticks out like a sore thumb.

I think you should put more emphasis into creating a header and stronger borders - the college title etc. could do with being a little bigger or have a logo attached. The semi circles in the top right corner look out of place to me. Also, the footer looks interesting but doesn't have anything to do with a college. Sorry for being so critical!

Design Stage

thanks for your replies so far. my main concern is the xhtml structure that will create this site. When css is turned off, I don't want the bits to be out of place because I forced them into a logical position with css.

On the design side, the college does have a logo but I took it of for anonymity at this stage, also I didn't explain that I creating a theme for the site about growing - hence the sun and grass and plants - which will grow the deeper into the site you get.

It does have to be almost patronisingly simple and obvious with regard to the navigation due to the target audience.

Comments taken on board so far though so thanks for those,
cheers,
