Hi Pals,

There are two designs with different background options at www.sercotec.net/kare and www.sercotec.net/kare2 which one would you prefer if you were the customer.

Also the site is a little bit heavy because of flash menu and animation, I will be glad if you check the loading times, and browser issues too, it seems fine in ff 1.06 and IE 6.

Thank you very much...

(Laureen , I tried to make it as delicious as possible Smile )

The first one Laughing out loud The background on the second one is too strong.

I agree - definitely the first one!

It looks good on FF for windows and Safari Mac.

On Opera (windows) the bottom nav has moved up and is half hidden by the Wheel.

On FF for Mac the "Yeni Uretilenler" heading is cropped a bit at the top.

I get 19.6 seconds download time for the first version on a 56kbps modem

My strategy is so simple an idiot could have devised it!

Asking my mum (Laughing out loud) she likes the first one too. The diagonal stripes are too bold, distratcing the eye from the main content.

THe second one's better, it matches more with the top logo and car picture, and it's more subtle. It looks nice and professional - well done Laughing out loud

One thing - I'd maybe make the footer links either a bit smaller or a bit darker.

Hi Serkan
Both are good at 800x600, but on anything larger the stripes on the second one are a bit "in yer face".

Quirkly, I got around 30 seconds full load time on 56kbps for both. I guess that just means people who live west of the Greenwich meridian are beginning to wake up and get online. Wink

Yes, still delicious - your designs, I mean Tongue

Another vote for #1. My only worry is that it is perhaps a bit too animated, but that is a matter of taste.

Also, I suggest folks look at how you have gridded your design with CSS - very slice and dice table-like but no tables in sight. (Those of you with the Firefox Web Developer Toolbar can 'outline block level objects' to get a good look.) However - you need to allow your divs to grow in height to handle larger text sizes. Also, it appears you are not using the full .clearfix code for clearing floats.

Thanks again for your kind comments,

Pineapplehead, haven't decided on footer issue yet, and thanks to your mother for additional vote Smile

HellsBells , I couldn't see the opera issue in my 8.01, only the problem with it is sparing 1 px column if the width of the browser size cannot be a whole number when try to give even spaces from both sides.

DCElliot,

What can be the proper way of extending divs when the font size increases. And what is the full clearfix code ? I had this from internet once upon a time and made a code snippet which I am using as needed with modern browsers.

And Dear Lorraine,

A good charity director is who lives her life like the ones she tries to help. Wearing their shoes in other words. Looking from a 800x600 view on a dial-up connection. I believe you sometimes close one eye, and tie one of your hand behind to simulate the best accesibility conditions Smile And I am happy you find it in taste of your eye. I always need gourmets like you Smile

Cheers,

You see this code:

height: 160px;

in #contentarea?

Remove it. It will allow you to resize the text and the text in that row won't break.

That has to be so for the bar just below the menu, that is not for the whole content.

You need look no further than this website for the full .clearfix code - after all Tony, this site's founder, was the originator.

thepineapplehead has also commented on the fixed div height issue. If you are going to fix a div's height, then don't allow it to have expandable content like text - graphics only - or so little text that it won't overlow under any reasonably conceivable range of font sizes.
