Hey guys,

Here's a site I've spent the last 4 weeks porting for a friend from a horrible table layout (probably FrontPage) to a nice WordPress template and added a few neat new features! Whew! It passed the W3C test as valid XHTML 1.0! :thumbsup:

Please let me know what you think! I develop in Safari/MacOS 10.4 so there are sometimes different renderings in other browsers...

Ah, good point!

Ah, good point! Thanks...resolved the defunct CSS classes. Those were imports from some silly feed service. :bigoops:

Thanks for taking a look

It's a really clean layout.

It's a really clean layout. Looks nice and is easy to read. I'm not exactly excited about the use of absolute positioning in the menu and the sidebar does break but only with extreme text size increase (it gets to be a problem after 5 increases).

Here's what I mean:

As far as looks go, it's nice and clean, but I'm not crazy about the black unstyled links.

Cool, thanks for your

Cool, thanks for your thoughts guys. Yeah I don't like a lot of the content styling either, but it wasn't my call--that was Tom's pick! Most of my work has been porting everything from tables to divs (major pain in the @$$!)

Triumph, sorry but I'm new to this--how do you increase the text size? Is that via Firefox or Mac universal access or something? How does one design for the web so that this works properly? can you point me in the right direction? I'd like to learn...

Thanks!

View menu from the toolbar and then Text size or if you have a scrollwheel mouse, just hold down the Ctrl key (on Windows) and scroll up and down.

Giving boxes fixed heights is usually the thing that will cause the most problems when text is increased in size, so in most cases, don't give elements containing text fixed heights.

How to get help
Post a link. If you can't post a link, jsFiddle it.

agreed. if you have a link in a post, you can't see that it's a link. sidebar links, maybe but even then....
