    My First Proper Site! - Review Please

    I've been working on a site for my friend's marquee business. I've been using MS Expression Web 2 and Notepad++ and have been grappling with CSS, web templates and the lot. My favourite achievement of the site is the (entirely CSS and HTML) drop down menu (hover over "marquees" on the menu bar) - took me an age. The transparency and background change don't however work in IE, despite the code complying with standards. The bar is still perfectly usable in IE.

    The site can be found here: http://topuptents.x10hosting.com

    It's on temporary free (but very good) hosting. My friend owns the www.topuptents.com domain name and hopefully will transfer the new site when it is complete.

    I have validated the site on the w3c site and every page passes except the one with the embedded youtube video! Don't know how to fix that.

    Please note the site is not quite done: only half on the individual marquee pages are made, they will be done soon.

    Would love to hear any opinions and/or recommendations. Cheers

    Nice site. This will clear up your youtube validation issue, or it does for me using 4.01 strict. Just change the names/sizes to taste.

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/Z5uHt4AwYb4&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0" width="440" height="356">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Z5uHt4AwYb4&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0">
    <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
    Make sure you use &amp; in place of each instance of the ampersands. And adding rel=0 will stop youtube from showing related videos after yours finishes playing.

    Thanks, that's a help. It's now passed the validation. Cheers!
