    site review

    I just started this one today.

    I want to get a good layout - simple and informative. none of the links are connected up. any feedback greatly appreciated. the design is at a very early stage - i am trying to come up with a logo and buttons etc.

    i am going to colour code each channel and try and keep the main structure light weight - allowing for more kb heavy content.

    URL removed by WA as requested by member

    is the layout to simple?

    You are going to get 101 complains about the tables. So I will be the first. You need to learn how to create websites that are synamatically correct and fluent!
    Note: I do not test code. I just write it off the top of my head. There might be bugs in it! But if any thing I gave you the overall theory of what you need to accomplish. Also there are plenty of other ways to accomplish this same thing. I just gave one example of it. Other ways might be faster and more efficient.

    Moving to the site reviews forum...

    I also would recommend against the tables. I've looked at your layout and it would be pretty straight forward to make it using CSS.

    I'd recommend reading this article on how you can semantically make your menus with CSS: http://www.alistapart.com/articles/taminglists

    And for examples on XHTML and CSS based sites, there is a sticky: http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=23475

    I haven't used Dreamweaver in several versions, I don't know how much a newer version would help but I suppose it couldn't hurt. Maybe download a trial copy of the newer version before you actually buy it.

    thanks oracle.

    i'm really disappointed with this news. i thought tables were paramount.

    so i should steer clear of them? if so what does a 100px by 100px css table look like?

    Steer clear of them for layout purposes, they are still perfectly valid if you are using them to display tabular data.

    There are some great links for CSS (and hacks) resources in this thread: http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=20862

    am i on the right tracks with this?

    i was going to then make all my tables inside the structure.


    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Source the Market</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <!--
    .bodytab { background-color: #FFFFFF; background-position: center top; border: 1px solid; position: absolute; clip: rect( ); width: 800px; border-color: #000000 solid; vertical-align: top; padding-top: 2px; padding-right: 1px; padding-bottom: 2px; padding-left: 1px; visibility: inherit; z-index: auto; height: 10px}
    -->
    </style>
    </head>

    <body bgcolor="#999999" topmargin="5">
    <span class="bodytab" style="width: 800px; background-color: #FFFFFF; layer-background-color: #FFFFFF; border: 1px none #000000; height: 100%" id="topnav"></span>
    </body>
    </html>
