    I think the curvy one has a little more something to it.

    You really need to fix that code though. I can assume you use 1024x768? the right links break out of the red box at higer res and it doesn't scale down to 800x600 at all. It gets real ugly.

    and see what it looks like if you justify the text in the right column.
    Stop making things so hard on yourself.

    I like the rounded also - the banner is pretty neat too

    where'd the stars go? or are we making those curvy too?

    I like them both (though I don't like pick background on the straight's divs). I may have to buck the trend and say straight, but it's a really tough call. Somehow the curvy one seems familiar to me, the staright more original.

    Maybe it's time for a style changer?

    I like the radiused corners and the banner of the curvy one. But I don;t like Black on Blue print. Hard on the ol' eyes.

    wow, quick responses, great feedback

    I agree that it is time for a style changer; I did see one on a ala article that looked quite simple to implement.

    The rollover pink divs are history!

    The common response seems favourable to the curvy, but i need to change the heading text color. My code is a mess, i have not tested at all it was just a late night mock-up, i have just tried on 8 x 6, it broke!

    Actually im a little stuck on making graphics(main banner) work with %'s and elastic sites, anyone have any good links?

    Thanks for great comments, anthony

    Look at this this site I made. Note the max and min widths (not in IE). It's set so in IE it should max out with no scroll bar, and the minimum stops at the actual banner width. The hard part of this site was working the graphics and figuring it all out. You can go from 504 px I think to 1024, then it enlarges vertically only. If you have a scroll wheel, activate it while holding Crtl (Win)... it's great fun.

    This site also uses a style changer (PHP/Cookie) to select serif or sans serif.

    thankyou, but....

    I am afraid im not entirely sure what you mean by the max and min width?, also I dont know what you have done to make it resizable like it is?, I can do resizable without images, but with images is very tricky!

    I can break my image up so that it is 2 images, the left and right curved edges;

    The left curved image with the logo, name etc.. could be positioned left in the div. and the right curved image positioned right in the div.

    Is this what you mean?, then i could just have the div background color fill in the middle part, which would make the banner elastic. To an extent!

    Thanks for your time, Anthony

    Make the images wide, but have them overlap. Min-width and max-width control how far it goes horizontally (so you don't get a horz. scroll bar). The images themselves are either big enough to allow for max resizing (like the link backgrounds) or they allow overlap (like the banner/s). See Page Info, Media to see the individual images, then it should start making more sense on how it was done. Mostly I do fixed width sites, but I am keen on this one (my first) attempt at elastic.

    Everything is measured using ems or %, but the images are still measured in pixels. If you want the images to resize as well, measure them in ems, but be prepared for viewing differences if people have non-default text sizing.

    Study the images and the CSS and it should start making sense.
    I hope this helps.

    }

    well i have indulged all your good words

    well i have indulged all your good words;

    and i have come to the conclusion that the curves are good and taken onboard a very basic looking design that i think works that incorporates features from the curvy and staright, what do u think?

    It's too clear for me. My default Firefox background is gray (no theme), so it's more like a clear gray. If it had a white background I would think it looks really great. Anthony, send me a PM and I'll reply with a quick-n-easy PHP style switcher for you, the one I use. Changing styles via the selector is a drag since you have to do it on every page. My switcher uses a cookie.
