    It's not bad, simple is good. On the right hand side at the end of the menu and the picture it doesn't seem to be really centered. I viewed it with firefox, have you tested with all browsers

    Get rid of the ugly 'valid xhtml/css' banners from the bottom of the page, users of the site aren't going to care that your site conforms to web standards. If you’re adamant about showing your support, use some unobtrusive text links in your footer.

    I also see the same misalignment problem as Lopezvic.

    Thanks for the feedback, I have fixed the problems you mentioned with alignment and how it looks in Firefox. Also checked it in Opera.

    There seems to be a small problem in Firefox which is creating a small gap at the bottom of the header div.

    I have created a simplified page to highlight this problem. If you view the following page in Firefox 1.0,
    http://www.fit2gether.co.uk/test.html
    you will notice a small gap between the image and the bottom border of a
    DIV.

    This gap is not present in IE6 or in Opera 7.23.

    The source code is very simple as you will see, and I have set padding and margins to 0px for the image and for the surrounding DIV.

    The DOCTYPE is XHTML 1.0 strict. If I remove the DOCTYPE declaration, the gap disappears in Firefox.

    Anyone know what the problem could be? Is this a bug in Firefox?

    Also, any more feedback or views on the web site design and look?

    Thanks,
    Stephen

    display: block; on the <img> id fixes the gap on your example.

    --> that page don't comform to the web standards.

    Good that you're trying!

    Very informal site.

    As a personal sidenote I'd like to add that "CSS Web Design" - that firm you're using have their website layout in tables, and that they haven't even specified a doctype ^^. gg, lol

    The web site is still under development, so don't worry about individual items failing the validator just now, it will all be tidied up before I'm done. As for the company web site, that was designed a good few years ago, and I doubt there are many people who have redesigned all of the web sites they did a few years ago.

    Besides, I'm yet to be fully convinced that tables are so very very evil. Using style sheets for layout has plenty of problems itself.

    You are correct in thinking that tables are not so terribly evil. What it comes down to is tables are just another tool to make web sites. Some tools are not as proficient and helpful as others, and CSS just seems to be taking over. An electric screwdriver is to a non-electric as CSS is to tables. You get the same thing in the end, and sometimes the batteries even wear out.
