SixByNine kindly pointed me in the direction of your site. I think he wanted me to do something. I'm sorry to ever other new site webmaster out there that I've flammed, you're all much
better than this. To begin, the semi-professional evaluation from the bastard website coder from hell [me]!
Learn HTML 4.01, and CSS, and learn them properly (don't use FrontPage, use a text editor). It's a very easy to learn document formatting language. HTMLHelp.com
has a HTML 4 Reference
. It's quite obvious you ripped your design from elsewhere, and their design (by coding, the look ain't too bad) really sucks! And tiling a non-tiling background looks very ugly.
Your date display has the Y2K bug, it's showing as 'March 26, Friday, 19104'. Browsers aren't supposed to execute code inside script tags that specify an external script in the src value, so you should remove that code. It looks like a French and broken version of the existing script. It's traditional that you enclose the script in '<!--' and '// -->' to prevent old browsers from rendering it (if you include scripts in your page, you don't need it if you're referncng something externally. But most ones are smart enough. That date shower is also unnessescary, I know what date it is by my computer's clock, I have a clock applet.
Unless your background is grey, or something with a 50% 'Value', you shouldn't have white links with black text. Otherwise they are hard to read.
It's generally a bad idea to have style attributes set IN the tag, use the 'id' or 'class' attribute (class is used for most things) and put them in your CSS. Tables are also evil. Put all your layout and colour information in CSS. I'll shutup if you do
You should probably put the link to PEEL outside
your main site navigation, or it implies you run PEEL. You should pop it in a separate links section after your site navigation, and probably even use a 88x31px button for PEEL. I don't know where one is off hand though, but I'm sure someone will hook you up with one in a later post.
Always set the doctype!!! And the character set (as it is not in the HTTP headers) And make sure it validates correctly
. 73 errors ain't good.
23:29 < SixByNine> oh, mic... coment on the fact that ooy's site looks shit in lynx ;p
Yeah, your site looks shit in lynx
. Not as bad in links
though. At least I can actually read the text, unlike in firefox
where I see the background (and thus have trouble reading the text.
00:08 < SixByNine> damn, you quoted me
00:08 < mic> :P
