    It's by no means a finished site. Actually, I'm still really working on the template of it. Ugh. So frustrating. It just doesn't look right to me, and ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I like the basic design, one problem I think is that your borders are too thick. Try cutting the thickness in half or so. The text in the outer boxes is getting lost, if it still looks lost after slimming the borders down, try increasing the text size. Other than that, I like it, nice color scheme.

    Quickly,

    1. Decent overall look.
    2. Rollovers on your navigation need to stick out more. Maybe change a:hover to white
    3. Your content (main text) is one big graphic. I'm assuming that's a placeholder for the real thing.
    4. Guestbook - put the elements in a 2x5 table to arrange them better
    5. I don't like thick borders myself. You might want to try putting your site together with thin, 1 pixel borders (like
    2advanced.com ).
    6. Try fixing your menu width with a spacer image (put a transparent image in the table at the minimum width you would like to make the cell). Right now, the two menus are different widths.

    Nice work. Keep at it!

    Ok, that wasn't so quick. lol

    Instead of increasing the text size, just try spacing it further from the border or increasing the contrast (making it darker)

    Thanks so far guyes; I'm taking all the advice!

    The content should show up if your browser supports iframes. That's the thing.. :S

    Good except for:
    1. The iframe. Never ever ever ever ever use one unless you absolutely have to
    2. The mouseovers. Just change color/add an underline instead of changing extended formatting.

    I see alot of sites use iframes (mine being one of them) ,they are supported by IE 4+ I believe. I know this makes bookmarking hard, but the back button still functions normally, and it makes the site seem contained. Personally, I like the benefits the iframe gives a designer and a coder.

    - the link blur is annoying
    - iframes suck. I can make the same site with tables.
    - very simple design overall
    - i'm kinda sick of the navigation style for it (having links on the left and the right)
    - i suggest having all on the left
    - or you could do the main links on top center and the sub links on the left
    - you don't really need borders
    - very good start for a simple and clean site
    Cheers, zionlocke :chinese:

    behind the banner up top, the background is messed up.
    I am a 13 year old graphics designer. I would love to make anyone who requests a logo for a price that we can discuss. I have taught myself how to make graphics. I made the winning entry for WebScalpel.com.

    I disagree partially with you, filbert, on the iFrames point.

    In my opinion, you should use them whenever feasible and necessary. I agree, however, that they should not be used in an HTML page that doesn't require their advanced functionality.

    See my complete thoughts on iFrames and an example of a good use here:
