    I recently got Dreamweaver, and began on this site. It's really not that hightech - suing just some html and a little dhtml. I'm trying to get into Flash, and learning some more d/html, and a really need to learn ccs.

    Anyway, LMK what ya think, and how I can improve! Thanks!

    It's pretty good, especially for a first site. Suggestions:
    1. Avoid a light-on-dark color scheme; they're hard to read and look unprofessional (IMO)
    2. Definitely get rid of the Javascript scrolling thing. I didn't even know it scrolled until I happened to move the mouse over it.

    Also if you're just starting out with HTML I wouldn't suggest using Dreamweaver. It's an excellent program but you tend not to learn HTML when using WYSIWYG editors.

    I agree with everything filburt said (especially the part about the first site). The only thing that I'd add is your link to insider.com needs an http:// before it.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    it's a neat design for your first site! but, i agree with filburt. a scrollbar would work out much better.:alien:

    Alrighty, here's the redesigned site - note the rest isn't in working order; just the index.

    Borders are a bit thick; also the content table needs more padding.

    Yeah

    The site is very good for a first timer. Good work on the site. It's very well done. I don't think your preloader is working for the rollover links. But the rollovers are really good. Thats my favorite thing about the site.

    Try this preloader it might work a little better.

    <html><head><title> </title>

    <script language="javascript">
    function preloadImages(){
    if (document.images){
    var imgFiles = preloadImages.arguments;
    var preloadArray = new Array();

    for (var i=0; i < imgFiles.length; i++){
    preloadArray[i] = new Image;
    preloadArray[i] .src = imgFiles[i];
    }
    }
    }
    </script>

    </head><body>

    <script language="JavaScript">
    preloadImages('image.gif','image.gif','image.gif') ;
    </script>

    Other than that the site looks good. Another suggestion would to be when you go to another page it's different than the homepage. Its darker. I think the whole site should stay the same throughout it, Insted of changing from light to dark.

    filburt : Thanks for the suggestions. I'll look into that.

    Mexican Hat : Thanks for the code. I was using Dreamweaver's default preloader, so I'll scrap it and use yours. =) And thanks for the compliments on the rollovers. I like the b&w > color feel. And you're right about the comment about the pages being the same - they will be. The layout on the other sites was my old layout, and I'll be converting them soon. I just wanted to get a good template first.

    Thanks for the help!
