    Was v1 blue?

    I like the site, though I'm not sure on the Serif font you've used in your header for the smaller text - the sloping background makes it fairly difficult to read.

    What is a nibble?
    What is a snack?

    Perhaps these things need explaining to the uninitiated user who has stumbled upon your site by chance? Otherwise, :thumbsup:

    That's what the "About" Section is for, but I suppose I could have a little explaination on the index page.

    v1 was red, blue and green. And I will be changing that small text shortly, I've had a few other complaints about it

    Thanks for your comments!

    Code:
    In the frequently asked questions-section - the code - the reason you have something named paragraph with tag <p> is because you shouldn't have to write
    "please let us know; we have them available.<br /><br />"
    for example.
    Code:
    <div class="thinHR"></div><div class="snackBox"><div class="SilverCookieAward" title="Silver Cookie Award"></div>
    						<div class="snackInfoBox">
    						<div class="snackName"><a href="click.php?url=http://www.digitalscience.za.org&amp;id=782" title="Visit Digital Science" target="_blank">Digital Science</a></div>
    						<div class="snackURL" title="http://www.digitalscience.za.org">http://www.digitalscience.za.org</div>
    						<div class="snackStats"><b>43</b> Nibbles and <b>0</b> <a href="index.php?p=snack_info&amp;id=782" title="Read and Leave Comments about Digital Science">Comments</a></div></div></div>
    Have a look at that code - it really feel like you move the bloat from tables to xhtml - in which case there is reallt not much of a point doing it in XHTML... How about
    Code:
    <div class="hr"></div>
    <div class="img"><img src="goldcookie.jpg" alt="" /></div>
    <div class="entry">
    <h3><a title="visit Site Name" href="site name">Site name</a></h3>
    <p><span>http://www.google.se</span><br />
    <b>61</b> Nibbles and <b>1</b> <a href="comment.html" title="">comment</a>
     </p>
    </div><!-- end entry -->
    That's all the markup you need. The rest is taken care of by selectors, making it easier to change with time. Also, now the markup truly reflects what is written - divs are block level elements and are not intended to be used as headings or paragraphs.
    Reply if you want help with how you write the css code to fit my markup - I'm sure you can figure it out yourself otherwhise.

    About the site entries: I by far preferred when you had small cropped thumbnails of all the sites - it made it more interesting to view the list of sites.

    About the design: It's beautiful, classy and modern, but to be honest I feel that the layout is very much inspired by other new sites: the redesign of A List Apart, Treehouse, Design-in-flight - so much that it loses any personality it otherwhise could have gained. The current paradigm is towards clean sites like that, but I think you really have to go against the current when you have the possibility, at least if you're a designer... Perhaps you could do something more innovative with the menu? (just a suggestion)
    Otherwhise; the design is ok, but perhaps lack that special thing - originality...

    It's interesting that you have indeed indexed my site, and that I now give you comments about your own . Gives the word communications a new meaning
    I'm launching a new and redesigned version of my website when my school workload lifts a bit - be sure to check it out then and add it

    Cheers
