...therefore I would appreciate a once over please Smile

Things I know about:
1) Presenter pages don't validate because the

s aren't around the testimonials 'cos I've just altered something and now have to alter the blockquote css margins. I'm on it.

2) I can't get the left margins to line up - see headings and underline and paras on home page for example. Is this because 5ems of heading take up more space than 5ems of 0.9 body text? Is there any way of lining it up?

3) I inherited the statcounter code and have not bothered about the 2 errors it throws 'cos I've puzzled over it and can't fix it.

The code is a nightmare of s because ma wants them where she wants them and they have no rhyme or reason - she just likes it spread out Smile This has not been one of my better experiences. But by all means comment on it if you want.

However, this has been sent out to 3-4 people for comment so I thought I'd ask for some feedback too Smile

Manners, maybe?

Think of it as a lesson in netiquette, young lady. Wink

You have some definite

You have some definite oddness going on that I think you ought to tackle.

What earthly reason is there for a series of paragraph tags with one in the middle requiring a span enclosing the text and having inline styles setting padding 6em!!!! This feels hacky, trying to correct some issue?

Why are those three items not a list, you have the ul then as a added bonus to place styling on

Gary - I thought I replied

Gary - I thought I replied in the same vein to what I read as a light tap on the fingers. Since I'm always grateful when you and others look in on my stuff, I'm truly sorry if you found my response inappropriate and offensive Sad

Hugo - If you look at that bit on the Home page (under the first presenter), those three lines are stepped/staggered across (yeah, I know). The only other way I could think of was to put a heap of nbsp(Drunk. If I make it a list, I still have to put that styling on the LIs.

Ah, Ducky. I did take your response as humorous. I'm sorry that my comeback was not as light-heartedly facetious as I meant it to be.

That's not where the objection lies. See line 10,

<meta name="Description" content="Maggie <span style="color:red">Adkiis (sp?)</span>, EFT Master presents <span style="font-weight:bold">"</span>Rediscovering the Sacred<span style="font-weight:bold">"</span>, an exciting 2 day practitioner certification workshop ">
You have quotes within quotes. Use single quote marks on the internal quote.

Whats EFT? That was my first

Whats EFT? That was my first thought about this site. I couldn't see anywhere that defines what it is. I googled this and got many different meanings and uses. I think it will be a good idea to have an opening paragraph that explains what EFT (in this sense) is and does.

Gary - bless your little

Gary - bless your little cotton socks! Thank you - I have now discovered several other bits I forgot in titles and metatags - will fix Smile

Cupid - Thank you also Smile - while it's unlikely anyone who doesn't know will want to come to the conference, you're right in that you never know who you might introduce to EFT if they stumble across the site. I did think of it earlier on but it got lost in the shuffle.

www.emofree.com - go to the "free videos" on the left of the home page and it will take you to a page of 12 or so videos, most of which are short - except the Vets one (20mins). Watch the intro one with Gary Craig - well worth 7 minutes of your time Smile
