    (another) new layout - i will pay you for your criticism. in Who's Line points.

    I just finished my new layout for my blog site (which will be back up soon(which is what I said 2 months ago)). It is about the tenth layout I have made for it, and the first one I have liked. It validates as XHTML 1.1 Trans, and CSS will validate when CSS3 comes out. The only cross-browser issue I have noticed is a small(about 2 pixels) gap between the "banner" image and the navigation(btw, I need help fixing this, 'cuz I can't figure it out). Anyways, tell me what you think.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    I like it. I have noticed a trend in the way you stick to one set of colours so easily. I.e your previous orange spectacle and now alas a blue lagooon. Yet it looks good and has an attractive heading image.

    Well done. When i can have a closer look i will!

    Alritey! I've created an alternate stylesheet, quite a bit lighter (available from the "color scheme" menu on the right.

    Mmmm, gotta love the header.

    It seems a bit too dark for me, and I get some choppy scrolling.

    Wow... orange color scheme; my eyes! My EYES!
    Thousand different paths
    So many sterile ends
    I chose the Devil's path

    Never shall the sun kiss my face
    And caress me with it's burning light
    For I dwell in the shadows
    And sleep side by side with death

    yah firefox can be annoying sometimes cant it? Thats because of the fixed background, fire fox does it at a lot of sites with a fixed background for me. Look at how choppy this gets http://quasi-ke.servebeer.com/design/index.aspx I need to figure out what I am going to do with my background there though, might be dropping the fixed background, but it would be cool to keep.

    Yeah. That happened on one of Jona's sites, but I think that was from the transparency, because it sorta stopped if I disabled the transparency.

    Heh heh, yes, that was indeed quite nasty. I've removed the yellow background, hopefully that will help a bit.

    I think "The Names Dan" on the header should be clearer, wack some greater letterspacing in to make it more readable.

    So what is the blog going to be about? I ask because I think the banner is going to be very distracting(gee, you think ), and I wonder if having those kinds of pics are really going to be best suited for your blog. I would actually use a more white based color scheme based on the pics you are using currently because the other colors, all the more so for the blue one, make the banner pics stand out all the more.

    If you don't think the banner images dominate your blog, just look at how much talk of them dominate this thread.

    Heh heh, yes, I was going to have to do some sort of another "redesign" anyway, as I lost ALL the PNG's for this one

    **EDIT**
    And the blog is just going to be about my life and whatever else I want to write(or complain) about
