I am working on my son his website but i am totally stuck now. i must admit that I don't understand CSS and I think it's more trial and error, a lot of just changing something random and seeing the effect and probably luck that I got this far.
But I suppose that is how people learn.

The first problem is with the transition text it works like a charm but then after it is completely shown it disappeared.
here is the link: http://jasonmurset.net16.net/index.html and for some reason all my letters are underlined now but I haven't changed a thing.

Second problem is http://jasonmurset.net16.net/fotos.html in Dreamweaver when looking at the preview it works like a charm, when I upload the whole page including the CSS folder and image folder the pictures won't even load.

I am sure that the site won't work properly because of some small errors somewhere but because of my lack of knowledge it's impossible to even know where to begin to look for them.

I am not sure if it is necessary to enclose the html too but ofcourse I will if needed.

Hmm

I don't see any letters disappearing. I can't imagine any compelling reason for using individual links in the h2 (which should be h1; if you used h2 because of font-size, you did wrong).

You did change something, see the text-decoration property:

.content p {
  font-family: "springtime blues";
  font-size: 40px;
  line-height: 30px;
  padding: 10px;
  text-align: left;
  text-decoration: underline;
  text-shadow: 0 1px 1px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2);
}

Dreamweaver will do you no favors. The use of position: absolute; is a prescription for broken web pages in the hands of the beginner. It has too many gotchas.

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

More...

I am seeing the images as expected. Is your lack of images occurring in a particular browser? I do see that no images appear without javascript enabled. A page that won't work without javascript is a broken page. It doesn't need to work the same, but it does need to work.

Again, the use of absolute positioning breaks the page unless I use a very large browser window.

Of interest, javascript sucks battery charge like a vampire sucks blood. Lots of people disable javascript on their smart phones for that reason.
