    You have done a good job there at creating a pretty good backwards compatible website that looks clean and attractive.

    I also noticed you have secured your server a bit too, or if you never, someone has.

    The information is clear (which is what I like), good navigation, and I like how you have made your forum fit in with everything really well.

    Great job. For the sake of you possibly not knowing you might want to get your hands on some of these for testing and building purposes:


    http://apache.org (get a SECURE server)
    http://php.net (get server-side processing)
    http://crimsoneditor.com (time to build some real web pages with proper GUIs)
    http://gimp.org (great for making graphics for web pages)
    http://filezilla.sourceforge.net (upload files to your webspace)
    http://mozilla.org (get a better browser, start testing)

    Hi, thanks, I didnt secure the server so it must have been my webhost,

    I use most of those apps anyway, cept for gimp (when I use linux I use gimp ) and I use FireFox for my browser.

    Thanks for the tips anyway.

    Jack.

    Any more feedback much welcomed.

    Theres nothing really to comment design wise but code wise you could do a few things such as add a doctype, lose the tables, use css to control more of the presentational features and use semantic code.

    that site doesnt even have a doctype you should have one, you would need the transitional one because your site doesn't use css -thats with html 4.01.

    Is this not a doctype:

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

    If so then that is at the start of my page.

    I really think rather than just not using CSS at all you should combine the 2 so that you can support multi-columned layouts while giving an attractive layout. Using tables for layout might not be recommended practise but it certainly helps when it comes to complicated layouts.

    Although I must stress that both your designs could have just as easily (if not easier) been created using CSS and no tables at all for the layout. Tables are more for giving connected information with headers to clearly define what the information is and how it is connected.

    I always say this to people. The reason for your page being 'messed up' is because of your lack of understanding when it comes to the box model. It is simple.

    Code:
    +----------- border -----------+----------
    | +--------- margin ---------+ |
    | | +------- padding ------+ | |
    | | |                      | | | another
    | | |        content       | | |   box
    | | |                      | | | (layer)
    | | +----------------------+ | |
    | +--------------------------+ |
    +------------------------------+----------
    |                              |
    |          another box         |
    |            (layer)           |
    |                              |
    +------------------------------+
    CSS and layers are like lego. Putting all the small bricks together using only the red bricks, then making things looking a bit more fun by adding blue bricks in with the red bricks to give some style. They all contain the same thing, but their properties are different.
