    The overall is nice, but see how it renders in Firefox 0.8, the navbar overlaps the header

    ive noticed that as well , but not sure what to do about it , i think its because i was using frontpage at first and then i download html kit to do the rest. I think frontpage has soemthing to do with it.

    I've noticed a couple of things within your code that may be causing problems. First, there's a div, right after the body tag, with the id "top" that contains nothing and there's nothing in the css either.

    Secondly, there's a lot of mixed measurements.

    HTML Code:
    #header {
      height: 4em;
      padding: 0.25em 2.5mm 0 4mm;
    }
    General that's a bad idea to do that. (And it's spread throughout the CSS; this could be causing the problem...) I'd suggest picking which measurement type you'd like to use and then stick with it through the design. I also noticed that some of padding attributes just have numbers and no measurement type.

    Those are just a couple of things I notced by skimming through you're code.

    Your name (after the intro thing) is gigantic!

    I think the palm tree image does not fit very well. Maybe a real (as in photograph) palm tree ? or some leaves off to the side.. I might also make the header text (the site name) a little smaller, other than that, it looks good!

    It still seems to be loading more than 1 minute after I clicked the link. All the text etc seems to be there so I don't know what it is...

    Firstly, I know that Netscape isn't a cutting edge browser, but lots of ordinary users have it. On my Netscape, your navbar sits on top of (partially obscures) your top banner. I tried changing the text zoom setting, and it shifted a bit, but the banner was never wholly unobscured.

    And I realise it's a personal site, where the rules are different, but some of the grammatical whoopsies are unfortunate... (you ARE a college chap, right?)

    My main impression was that it filled the screen too much. Leave a narrow column either side and it wouldn't look so overwhelming.

    HTH (though it probably won't) :bandit:

    yeah keep it coming . love the feedback , helping me find things to correct , one thing is i took the original design off of a template on oswd that was supposed to be strict and css 2.0 but im not sure about that.

    One thing i know that i am having a problem with is that the font on the title is way too big but the font that i want to show up is not and thats why it is so big. I was trying to use a different font that is not installed on peoples machines obviously and i thought that if i hosted it in the same folder that it would work , but that hasnt happened , does anyone know how to link the font to the style sheet so that it will use the specific font that i have posted? thanks a ton already
