Looks pretty good. A few

Looks pretty good. A few comments:

  1. There's a horizontal scrollbar at 800 x 600 (in FF at least). It seems like you're probably not out by much though.
  2. Better off using a CSS border instead of a hr in your footer.
  3. Things come unstuck a bit when you resize the text in your browser - the nav pops down out of its background and same with the boxes on the side.
  4. I'd take the . out of Technical Info in the nav bar - it looks wrong.
  5. You've broken the Unique Features up into separate pages, but have one long page for Installation, Warranty, Tips etc - seems to me you'd be better doing it the same for all of them for consistency's sake.

nice color pick, i like the green themes.

in my FF the line @ the bottom is not placed well. i agree with Tyssen better use a border than a hr.

also the pages is too long for me, and I think you can reduce it to 1 page website (better in marketing).

but overall design is ok, good job

I don't like your contact

I don't like your contact button
It forces me to email you.
What if I don't have Outlook setup and I just want your email address.
A normal user will not understand that you can right click on a mailto link and just copy the email address.

the contact button should take me to a page where the email is written out, a phone number is listed, and for ease of a use a contact form should be present so i can quickly email you. If there is a brick and mortar location this should be listed as well.

Looks really good.

Looks cool. I did not check any css since I am a newbie too. But after checking your site I realize that I am below newbie.

Are you using any programs to help in the design or layout. I am doing everything by hand but there must be a better way??

Could we please create a new sub-newbie category???

Thanks for the feedbacks!

@ Tyssen:

  • I followed your suggestion, replaced the hr with CSS border. Along with it, the horizontal scrollbar at 800x600 also disappears. I guess I miscalculated the padding and margin then.

  • About what happens when you resize the text. I don't know how to fix that, is it possible to take care of nav background and all - along with the text resizing? :shrug:

  • Deleted the dot too Smile


@ zhastro & Tyssen:
I don't really like the long pages too, but that's how the client wants it, so...

@ Deuce:
You're right about the contact form. I was planning to do that as soon as I have time.

@ yacahuma:
Thanks :blushing: you're flattering a fellow newbie Smile
I use Adobe Photoshop for creating the layout mock-up & editing the pictures. And Macromedia Dreamweaver for creating the HTML & CSS.

By the way, does anyone use Adobe GoLive? Is it good for editing CSS?

Fair enough they want long pages but wouldn't it be better if it was consistent throughout the site instead of having one section broken up into individual pages and others not?

As far as text resizing goes, fixing the DIY box is easy: just add #CEE773 to the background (matches the bottom of the bg-image).

The nav would be trickier because you've made the header, nav and body-bg all part of one image. Instead of having the nav bg as part of the same image, make it separate, so that as the size of the nav text increases, so does its background.
