    Find ways to improve this website

    I've got to that point where I cannot find any more ways to improve my own website.


    Any advice will be greatly appreciated

    Hi Tim,
    This is not of a technical nature but one suggestion is to amend the wording on the Technologies page (omit "As you can see, I am skilled at many technologies"). The "Click to find out more" statement should suffice.

    Also, in the Design Process, there are three topics (nice job on the visual effect!), Understanding, Development and Maintenance. All feature the same information when clicked (explains initial client contact).

    On "Portfolio", the black text starting with "Scroll using the arrows" runs off into the navy background. I'm viewing using IE 5 at 800 x 600 res.

    Otherwise, looks great. You really know your stuff! Good luck freelancing.

    If you really want me to find errors then I shall, the Document Type Definition (DTD) reports Strict XHTML 1.0 on the first page whereas the label says XHTML 1.1.

    It would have been more wise to ask "how you may improve the site" rather an get people to find errors, because they will make it their objective .

    It would have been preferable to label the navigation menu graphics for your portfolio - those two "navigation cones" since you are displaying Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Double-A.

    Also the interactive "design process" could be bothersome to navigate, try to provide alternatives to the embedded Flash object.

    Although your Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) grammar is correct you could have made better use of the 'background-color' and 'color' by making sure there was a better colour contrast.

    Because you have chosen to follow the WAI checklist I would find these points probably would conflict with the checkpoints for 'Double-A'

    Those are some of the main points that leapt out when you asked me to find errors...

    okay I shall fix those 'errors'.

    I did actually mean to say 'can you think of ways to improve my website?' Sorry about that.
