Hey all,
I've taken over the design of my site from the web design company, learned a little bit of html and css (thanks all in here), discovered web standards and tabless designs and maybe bitten off a little more than I can chew!!!

Anyway my site is up and seems to work OK on the latest opera, FF and IE on PC. Validates fine.

Could you have a wee look see and give me some feed back on anything from design to code. Any pointers to hacks I should be using would be great too.

Cheers, Alastair

Site check please

Looks good - firefox 1.0

You shouldn't use the nbsp to space those headings (h1) - padding should do the trick.

Nice site though - very simple and well laid out.

In Mozilla 1.7.6 and Firefox 1.0.2, I'm seeing this error on the right side of the screen. This line stretches down the entire height of the site. IE6 doesn't show this problem.

Thanks thepineapplehead

The reason I used spaces was to allow the underline to carry on to the edge of the page. I wonder if I could use a border to the same effect? Mmmm. I'll go and play around with that.

I was kind of worried if the spaces would have any -ve impact on search engines too.

thanks antibland

Yes I get that too. If I resize the browser window it vanishes. I wonder if some kind of FF hack might be required to make the contents of that container div move right out to its edge?
I'll need to work harder at this one since others are clearly seeing this too Crying

For some reason, I thought you were already using the border attribute. Doh! #-o

You should be able to use the border-bottom attribute; however, the h1 may span 100% of the width. Play around, see how it goes.

Looks beautiful on safari, but ie/mac you've got a couple problems. The navbar links ("home", "shop", "about us", etc.) don't stay in a little line the way they're supposed to, instead they're stacked up.

Also: your "shop" page is within a folder, so those footer links are broken. They're referencing "acatalog/reseller.html" and "acatalog/index.html" instead of the parent folder.

I like the design.

Thanks guys...

Thanks for the Mac 'heads up' crenner.
Someone told me the site had issues with macs but they were trying to sell me thier services! I'll need to see if I can get my hands on a mac to get these fixed.

The shop issue I'll need to fix - thanks. I'd love to replace actinic with something that writes ok code but I paid a fortune for it when I knew nothing. Customising it is a real fiddle...

I'll get on with the other issues as soon as.
Man, I've got to get this stumbleUpon ext off FF if any work is going to get done around here!
