    hi I am new around here,
    I am doing a site for my friend's company
    at first I had it set up in a 800x600 window and it was all nice, but later i realized that the need to resize the site needs to be available to the viewer, so I ended uo just running it on a regular window,

    but you can tel that the site was made with finite borders in mind...
    it's not finnished yet as you can see ...
    lemme know what you think

    You're off to a good start...one suggestion I have is to use more (almost all) of the blue box for text. It looks like you put a table inside the big box and put your text in there. Make that table 90% of the bigger table's width.
    Also, I like the banner up top. I'm not usually a fan of animation, but yours is slow and subtle enough, I think you can get away with it. One way to improve the banner, try to fade the ship on the left into the banner. You have some nice blur/blend effects going on in the banner, see if you can make the ship similiar.
    Lastly, a personal preference of mine is to center my designs (I know, I should probably try something different!) This design looks nice left aligned, but it may look better center aligned. It's up to you though, either way
    You've got a nice design going, can't wait to see the finished product.

    thanx for the reply, and I'm glad you like it =)

    that ship on the left is the company's logo that's why it gets a place all by itself and not being lost in the crowd.

    I agree it doesn't really fit there..... matter of fact it doesn't fit anywere heh...
    as for the text in the mai table you're right... but I haven't really got to that part of the site yet .

    thanx again

    Suggestions
    1. To make a graphical banner that scales to fit the site, either make a graphic that's SO BIG that it won't fit ANY browser, or have it fade to the background color of the banner table / frame. Check these sites for examples:
      http://www.stevenmoseley.com
      http://www.transio.com/ocasa2
    2. scale the bottom table to 100% width
    3. scale the main cell of the bottom table to 100% width
    4. scale the text in the main cell of the bottom table to 100% width (instead of doing 90% width, try doing 100% width, and just give the table it's in a cellpadding of 10 to separate it from the outside table).
    5. Get rid of the flags. I thought they were cool at first, when I thought they were waves. When I realized they were flags, however, I just wanted to close the page.
    6. make the tables for the left navigation scale vertically to fit their contents.
    7. put a valign="top" on the left navigation
    8. make the font smaller for the left navigation titles (i.e. "Information") - try style="size:11pt;font-weight:bold;"


    That's about it for now!

    If you're going to actually make this a business site eventually, be sure to buy a domain name to be professional.

    - i like to use verdana font; I suggest you use it
    - you could make your header span like mine does or like thegame does his
    - the tables on the main page should just be spaced apart and maybe re-colored

    good start
    Cheers, zionlocke :chinese:

    k thanx to your ideas here is were I am heading
    the banner will eventualy have a better transition on the right but you should get the point from this.
    and if I remember correctly I AM using verdana

    as for the flags I might resize them smaller and drop the alpha a little more cause "he" actually likes them
    yes my friend has already purchased fast webspace and Domain name
    but I am using my space now for testing
