The West Australian Web Awards (www.wawebawards.com.au) have been held for the past few years and they adhere to some fairly stringent guidelines in accessibility and clean semantic markup in both CSS and HTML.

So before I submit my site (submissions end 7th August) I would like to make sure it's schmico, so some good criticism or ideas would be loved.

This is the Address: www.simonwoodard.com.au

Thanks in advance

You've got a major problem

You've got a major problem that any judge reviewing from an accessibility point of view will fail you on - you've got a whole bunch of content served up as images but that content's not actually available in the source, e.g.

  • the slogan under your header
  • the phone number and email address in the header
  • the content relating to the logos in the footer (the logos look a bit fuzzy too)

The use of a transitional doctype just so your site validates with target="_blank" probably wouldn't win too many votes either.

You can also submit your contact form without filling out any of the fields.

Post a link. If you can't post a link, jsFiddle it.
