    Not a good idea to put a link to the W3C XHTML validator at the bottom if the page doesn't validate ;-)

    Also, the menu bar at the top... I assume that "programs/groups" is meant to be on the same line as the other options? I am using Firefox on Linux and it's spilled over onto a second line...

    I like the use of colours.. I think the shade of red that you're using mixes well with the grey.

    the main page used to validate, but the teacher who maintains it edited it with dreamweaver and forgot to but the slash after a few <br /> tags and used some <font> tags... Someone's gonna get a scolding tomorrow :-D it still validates on most of the other pages though.

    As for the links spilling over, it only happens to systems that has antialiasing enabled. I know 'cause I'm on linux firefox as well. I didn't think anyone would spot that :]

    I didn't bother fixing it since the parents who access it are mostly technophobes and on windows. Laziness may have been a part of it too :]

    btw, does anyone know when voting for the site of the month contest is going to begin? it's been quite a while...

    Looks good, much better than the "stereotypical" high school website. The only thing I noticed is the repeating body background below the content area's bottom. See attached pic. (BTW this is due to my choice of resolution 1280x1024, and as you stated how many parents will have their resolution that high...)

    hm... yeah. I noticed it but couldn't find a solution for that one. If I increase the footer height there will be a big empty space on the bottom of smaller resolutions.

    any suggestions on this would be welcome :]

    OK I think I have a quick solution. Use the 1 pixel picture attatched below, put it in your images folder. Add the following to your css.css file:
    Code:
    .red {
    	position: relative;
    	float: left;
    	width: 100%;
    	height: 200px;
    	margin-left: 110px;
    	margin-top: 600px;
    }
    Find:
    </body>
    Before add:
    <div><img class="red" src="images/red.gif" /></div>
    I know this isn't the best fix, but you can sweeten it up from there.

    Yes, I realize that option. A better way would be to simply increase the height of the "bottom" class in the stylesheet. I didn't want prop it open with a physical element because it would result in a large empty area below the footer links. From your screen shot, you can see that it needs scrolling even on your resolution. On systems with smaller resolution (the school uses 800x600) that space would be huge, almost as large as the content area. I would prefer possible strangeness on larger resolution to definite strangeness on our school computers.

    Thanks for the input though.
