My new (empty) AKIRA site.

Cool!

Few problems:

You can only use IDs once. Change it to class.

Also, you need to replace all & with the code &.

Apart from that, nice site.

My new (empty) AKIRA site.

it's all looking good on the mac! I will post some screenshots. (hmmmm, attachments aren't working at the moment... so you will just have to trust me. Checked in FF, Safari and even IE looks good)

My new (empty) AKIRA site.

I don't like the 'heavy' feel of the black and red but that's just me! The sidemenu text links are far too small on my hi-res LCD monitor - what are they, 9px!

Life's a b*tch and then you die!

My new (empty) AKIRA site.

Hi,

Maybe something should show the user in which section he is ? I mean, for example, when I am in the "Akira Info" section after clicking on "Akira Info" in the main menu, I think that item of the main menu ("Akira Info") should be displayed permanently the same way that when the mouse is over it. Here is an example of what I mean : http://www.allocine.fr/ (see how the main menu at the top shows clearly in which section you are).

Good luck with your site, I like manga and anime a lot myself (I didn't like akira though Wink ) ! I've built a few little sites like about it, but nothing compared to your site...

My new (empty) AKIRA site.

Sorted the active page link thing.

Sorted the Validation.

Will sort the side nav text size. The side nav is very ugly at the moment, so gotta sort that aswell, maybe with javascript folding menus.

Thanks for your input....Jo

My new (empty) AKIRA site.

Hi,
to fix your problems with the side menu, just add linebreaks <br> into the links
eg.
<p><a href="mirror/artdoescollecting_akira_medicom.htm" target="_blank">artdoescollecting_akira_<br />
medicom</a></p>
I tested this and it works fine. That way you don't need to re-size anything and when you 'mouse over' the whole link still gets selected.
