    Web design is about how you take that sketch and make a web site out of it that is accessible, easy to navigate, scalable with user agent capablities and settings.

    The picture you posted is OK. The question is what happens to it when I click Ctrl+ after you code it.

    Working web site is not the one that looks the same in a few graphical browsers, but the one that adequately delivers its content to any device accessing it.

    I would recommend updating your coding techniques fisrt. Here what happens when you use tables where they do not belong: www.vladdy.net/tests/wm.jpg

    thanks for showing me that?
    question?
    what platform are you using to view my site, if it's windows, what version? 98, 2000, xp?
    because i'm using windows xp, and i see my site fine with no problems and i don't have another platform to view my site on.
    thanks

    I use Mozilla FireFox, that allows me to increase the site font size so I can comfortably read the content on my 21" 1600x1200 Sony Trinitron

    Mike, Mozilla is a cross-platform browser that will yield the same behaviour, regardless of the OS it is running on. The fundumental flaw of your site that it does not take into acount user font size setting.

    Sharkey, I got this monitor from Dell refurb stock two years ago for, as far as I remember, $500. It does take some space on my desk but it beats any Flat-Panel when I have time to fly a fighter sim

    a small tidbits

    I like the idea of the tabs color-coding which section you are in. I think that's a tried-and-true method. However, I would consider making the lettering a color, like a pale yellow, when this happens. Mainly, when you click on "Guitar" the black lettering on the blue tab is hardly legible.

    It's not as much as making the text fit as it is making your layout expand with the text as it increases in size. This would require a complete overhaul of your website.

    can you take a look at the color scheme of my site and let me know what you think of it?
    does it look better?
    what other colors should i use on the site?
    if there is any other kind of feedback that you can give me, that would be very helpful.
    what else should i add to my site or site design?
    thanks

    Yes, the consensus around here is pure CSS. Though if you are just beginning, and you find going pure CSS a bit too hard at the moment, you can always use a hybrid layout (Using a table for the basic structure and CSS for the visuals).
