    Although very simple, I think you did a pretty good job.

    I take it you're not a professional graphics designer, though.

    When I put my mouse over a link on the page, for example "Add/view comments," the text color seems to be too light and makes it difficult to read. I know that you'll be reading it before you put your mouse over it, in most cases, but I think it'd be a good idea to make it just a tad darker.

    Yeah that definatley needs to be changed ill do it once i get a chance. Thanks for the feedback and for helping with the actual PHP coding a while back.

    Also, check out Bobby, because he mentions a few things. When I disable stylesheets, I can't see the logo graphic, because it's a background; use something like <span style="display: none;">The personal site of Conor Hastings</span> on top of your background image, so that without CSS the heading can still be seen. (In fact, you should use <h1> instead of <span> for that, as it is a heading.) You may also consider using the LONGDESC attribute in your footer images, to tell about what PHP is, and so on and so forth. It may be a good idea to say, "Add/view comments to entry number n," where n equals the current entry ID. Bobby says it's bad to use two links that have the same description, yet go to different addresses. I'm getting a little nit-picky here, though, I think you could figure out any other problems and try to see if you can convince Bobby to make you valid AA.

    Lol... about your site, on an article you mention converting HTML 4.01 -> XHTML 1.1. For your answer, no, it won't be hard. All there is to be done is to change your doctype, and since it was already valid HTML strict, all you have to do is close empty tags (<br />, <meta />, <hr />).. and thats pretty much it for you.

    The B tag has no significance that way. Maybe you meant <br />?

    Actually, that still wouldn't show the text if stylesheets were disabled. Wouldn't you have to use something like this?

    CSS (in a stylesheet, not on the page):
    Code:
    span.title {
    display: none;
    }
    HTML:
    Code:
    <span class="title">The personal site of Conor Hastings</span>
    And I think your site looks very nice, Conor. Although a little simple, it is very easy on the eyes. I take it you like green

    Agree with me!
    If a user has CSS disabled, he'll see it, but if you disable the stylesheet, you're right it won't be seen. Sorry 'bout that. Wasn't thinking... must clear head...

    Yes, that is what I meant, it was a typo.

    As for your site, I think a few things could be done to improve the look, but the colors give it a unique look, and I can't complain about the layout .

    The navigation could be centered, maybe the text for the headers could be darker, as well as the a:hover's, I would also suggest maybe simply using text for the header, not an image at all, and also coming up with a motto. And, even though you may not be good with graphics, even one or two simple graphics could help the look of a site.

    Anyways, attached is (bad) example of a header I whipped up, to give you an idea of a possible header. The background image was gotten off a google search, and the image itself is from Claymera
