Hey, just finished this few days ago, I think it's working for IE 6+, and the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Safari.

It would be cool if you guys could check out the site and gives me some tips/comments. Just give me your first impression of it, it doesn't matter if you like it or not, you won't hurt my feelings by saying it's horrible.

Thanks guys!

Sorry for the double post,

Sorry for the double post, but I couldn't find the 'edit' button!

I just wanted to add, if you read the website you could tell that I want to become a freelance web design, so if you guys could give me some tips on that also, it would be great. The greatest trouble I'm facing right now is trying to find some clients!

I'm not going to be kind here

I'm not going to be kind here or pull any punches.

Lets forget about graphic design for the moment as it's, frankly, the least important aspect of web development, if you are pinning your hopes on the 'Look' of the site then you're out of luck, it doesn't look bad at all but web development can not be based on simply the ability to create mock web pages in a graphics programme.

What has annoyed me is the lack of understanding of the use of DTD in documents and thus the absolute lack of one. For the moment, sadly, using a DTD is absolutely vital and it will be some time before we are able to do away with the nasty things altogether - used for the puropose that most of us are used to.

Checking the or any forums posting guidelines is supposed to be a correct and proper thing to do sadly very few bother to; in these guidelines is a request not to post questions or code that is not complete with a DTD and that validates, also lurking around on the forum also would have probably highlighted this fact through other posts where the issue is raised.

Overall your code isn't too bad and thankfully no sight of misused tables. The clearing divs must be removed as it's not the way to do things search the forum for topics relating to clearing elements.

No character set declaration, you ought to state one using meta tags, don't simply rely on the server to declare it's default.

Before you make your first post it is vital that you READ THE POSTING GUIDELINES!

Thanks for the honest review but what's wrong with the way I'm clearing divs, it works. Puzzled

The use of markup for presentation is deprecated. Which would you rather have as your motto? "It's good enough", or "I do things correctly"?
