If you keep building "new"

If you keep building "new" sites, how come you are using a transitional doctype, what are you transitioning from?

If you want to be taken seriously as a web design and seo firm, maybe you should run spell check throughout your site?

Art is pretty, but on short pages like the w3c page your footer doesn't stick to the bottom like it looks like it should.

Also, you need to check your titles on the pages, your w3c page says something about generating passwords for your PC or something.

And then I saw the "XHTML code encryption tool"... :curse:

im not taking away

Hi
Im not trying to take anything away but a guy that lives local to me ripped off my entire site last year and used it as his own just changing the name in the banner image .. that is why i added this tool

Ive always had a bit of trouble making the footer stick to the bottom of the page so most of the time i do try to fill the page with text and stuff.. I have tried to make the footer of the page absolute bottom but when resizing the page it moves up to the resized bottom then stays there...

Ive been making the pages today and using page after page as a template so the titles are not finished yet. I still also have to write titles.

The reason i have used the transitional doc type is because when i have used the strict doc type i got one error in my inquiries form that i cant get rid of.. I don't really see how this makes much of a difference any way but if you have any words of wisdom for me then please reply here

Well essentially words of

Well essentially words of wisdom would be that to get around errors you don't simply change the DTD taking that analogy it would be easier just to remove it altogether , deal with the problem, post up the error message and we'll tell or at least attempt to tell you how to deal with it and retain strict validation.

I'm afraid someone ripping your site does not justify a tool such as that, and if that were really your concern or the case? why haven't you used it yourself?, tools like that don't lend a lot of professional credibility but then again that's in the case of people such as us, your clients wouldn't know or care probably.

There are plenty of footer tutorials dotted around the web and a post in the 'how to' section of the forum , if something gives you a problem it's best to read up and do something about it as stating the above will also tend to damage your coding credibility; also it's the reason the forum exists to help people with these sorts of things; if your serious about being a web design professional you'll need to know basic techniques of this type , what happens when a client expresses a desire for a footer at the bottom of the page? do you tell them they will need lot's more content then?

Not sure why you are using

Not sure why you are using rounded corners on only one corner of the main area.

because i like it

The reason is simple ... i like the look of it.. it serves no purpose at all except i think it looks good and that is all..

If i didnt think it looked good i would have made it a square corner

The goggles do nothing!

Hello!

On the link you provided, the dark blue links at the bottom...

"Web Designers UK for small businesses

Site Map"

They're a little bit painful on the eyes in my opinion, the bright red links on the very dark background are ok though, perhaps make them a shade or two lighter?

Anyway, those are just my opinions on an aesphetic angle.

Hope that helps,

Johnny B
