    Is the appearance of the site appealing?

    I have finished making some new enhancements to my site and I'm wondering what you people think of the appearance and content. Also, the usefullness of the site in the real-world,, whatever that means to you. Thank you.

    still not valid, and you've got quite the pointless table going there for your nav.

    SAM, how is my homepage not valid? I don't understand that.

    Yes, clearly I Haven't studied any advanced HTML, thus the reason for the primitive table.

    Thanks for the response.

    did you read the contents of that link? if so, perhaps you have some more specific questions. You've got quite a few errors, and I'm sure with a little effort you could sort most of them out on your own.

    Hi danwat1234

    You do have a few errors, but I am not a javascript person so I can not help you there. but just to get you started I did some toying with your site and because the text blends in with the background it is not a good idea to keep the background unless you use a background for the text as well.

    have a look at what I had done. I created a CSS for you with a few styles just to give you an idea on how to work with one. just open it up with notepad (any text editer will do). also what do you think of the background I put in?

    Yea Smercerit's a cool background. It resembles cancer or something. That would solve the text blending in with the background problem.


    Dera
    A very intersting look. Could I add pictures inside the table of contents?

    So, basically, when the mouse goes over a section of the contents such as 'Reviews' it will display the contents that I program in?

    That sound like a great idea and it stands out alot more than a table, just as long as I can insert pictures into your table too.

    Thank you for the help.

    Dan: Here's the link to the validation page. Sam just linked to your homepage, rather than the validator page:

    Thanks Dan, guess I wasn't paying attention. And Dera, I hope you realized you just did this man's entire senior project for him (poorly I might add, since you are using tables for layout).
