I just finished redesigning a site for some friends' newspaper using CSS and I'd like to get some feedback on the design. Hopefully, that way, if there's anything I need to change I can do that before school starts again.
Wouldn't that be it; converting the ampersands (&'s) to their entity equivalent?
AAAAAAAAARGH DAMN! That's exactly what I was doing, but it encoded them when I posted them...
Lol, I know, I know. Unless you view source it comes out funny, tho To get the special entity to show, you have to also do do thespecial entity for the ampersand signifying the special entity, lol.
& a m p ; a m p ; without the spaces.
I just copied and pasted what Cijori typed out and it (FrontPage) changed the && to & automatically. I hadn't even noticed that before. Anyway, I believe all the pages on my site are HTML transitional compliant now.
If anyone has any design feedback that would also be greatly appreciated.
Hm... the site has a nice, clean look and I like that. Looks a bit strange in 1024/768, but so do a lot of sites, and it's always good to be backwards complatible; the site still looks and reads fine in higher resolutions. I think that maybe the navigational links on the left should change background color :hover, to give them more impact, but it's still very user friendly; I could read & see everything as soon as the link opened, and I had no confusion as to what things were, yet the site still looks good, and that's definetely good, and although it is plain, user friendliness is worth that, IMO, it's a good exchange. So maybe a little more rollover on the nav, but other than that I have no complaints.
