Hi All ! I'm new here :)

Welcome to the forum Ghada,

Whilst I will refrain from jumping on you Wink it has to be said that you have some major problems with that page especially when posted to a standards based CSS forum.

The generated pop up code inserted at the top of the page is illegal the only thing coming before the html root element should be the DTD. Pop up ads are horrible things anyway and will always produce moans and this one is very bad , I would recommend finding another host pronto.

Triumph has linked you to the validator it would be a good idea to start to understand what the errors mean and to begin to fix them up, which you may well require help with.

I see you are using Frontpage to create your code which will not get a good response here, Frontpage and standards based compliant x/html / css do not sit together at all well .

It would be a very good idea to start reading some very basic tutorials on CSS/HTML coding to better grasp what your dealing with.

Do ask any questions that may arise but considering the minimal use of CSS at present it would be perhaps better to post these questions to the Off Topic area.

Hi All ! I'm new here :)

You are very brave announcing yourself here. It basically is like getting up on a table and stripping off all your clothes. Then people pick on your non standards-compliant code in non standards-compliant English Laughing out loud [previous posters can settle down - I'm just jerkin' yer chains]

This is a good community and if you make a 100% commitment you can be a much better coder in as little as two weeks. However I will explicitly state what was implied above.

  • You will have to forego Front Page and use a text/html editor, preferably one with syntax highlighting and access to HTMLTidy (a little program or plugin for validating your HTML and applying formatting that makes your code easier to read)
  • You should redesign your site using divs instead of tables and get rid of any font or other presentational tags
  • Learn about CSS (especially the CSS box model) and linking and embedding, Doctype Declarations, and dealing with floats
  • While not essential, I believe you should learn about XHTML as well - it is a stripped down and more highly consistent form of HTML that goes hand in hand with CSS.
  • Ask lots of questions, but do your homework first with searches of the forum or the web using words that you think describe the problem on which you are working. Chances are that someone else has been in the same situation.
  • Don't be fazed by occasionally cranky answers, especially if you didn't follow my last suggestion! Just go back and refine your question, post some code or a link to illustrate what you are working toward . . . sometimes even doing a diagram and uploading the image will help.

Good luck.

Hi All ! I'm new here :)

Ghada,

Sup? Nice of you to strip your clothes off for us. I suppose the those with sites validating to xhtml strict are "well-endowed." It's true, what DC says, though:

I thought I was a pretty decent CSSer until coming here. I did a lot of work on my site due to the great advice of regulars in this forum. It took a while to fix the problems, but my site can now remove its trousers with confidence and aplomb. I'm even able to make constant sexual references to flowers and someone will get my joke. A great forum, indeed. Welcome.

That's the spirit! Smile Willingness to improve is an admirable quality!

(Also, I'm not going to show you my old pages before I got into CSS. Not a chance!!! Laughing out loud)
