Hello all,

I have been working hard on this website http://capmex.biz about web design, now I think is ready for a test.

I would like to know if you can help me find any issues regarding css browser support on different platforms.

I also have some questions for you.

What can I do to improve it?
Do you think site's design reflects web design best practices?

Web Design website, please check.

Looks fine in FF 0.9.1
Best Practices? Everything validates so that's a plus Smile
I think your footer is too large... 125px seems a bit much to me.
Also am not sure about your header... seems like it is missing something...
Other than that well done

Very nice website i like the design, and your use of color.

I do have a couple of minor suggestions though

I agree rmfred you should half the footer, i would also try to incorporate some sort of picture/graphic in the header image on the left hand side.

Also the google ads are a bit imposing remember you really should have the most imported things on the left hand side of the page, at the moment the top google ad looks like it is more important than the opening text, I would look into maybe moving the ad until after the text.

Hope this helps

Thank you rmfred and tom_de_schlong for your kind comments.

About footer.
I have reduced footer to half, thanks for suggestion.

About header.
I was thinking on using a search box on the empty left side of page's header. This is still a work in progress and at the present time would not be very helpful with only four articles Sad I really need to add more soon. Thank you for the idea :idea: I will try to add a graphic there too.

About ads.
I have totally changed its position to make them less annoying.

Thank you, I really appreciate your help.

The ads mess it up.

Don't bother with an image for the footer, just give it a background color and a top and bottom border - it will expan for the text to fill it and save bandwidth.

Like the idea of the logo, it sits very well.
Don't like the menu buttons looking lost?
Maybe add a blue 1px line along the bottom of the menu.
Or even change the position of them so they become part of the red section?
It looks like two different pages instead of one?
Sorry! hope this helps?

Footer has been reduced to half, and ads have been rearranged to only show one per page on the right. Thanks for those suggestions.

Why don't you use a box with a border for the footer? It should be fine!
