    I started a new site tonight.. just to play around with mostly.. it is here: http://www.templeofdagon.com/ghost/index.htm

    'A Chinese Ghost Story' is a movie just in case you were wondering. There are 3 parts. A lot of my sites are just random things I like, since it is much easier to make a site when theres a subject :P

    Since I started it a couple of hours ago, and its now 4:30 am here, my eyes are too blurry to judge it hehe.. thoughts?

    Nice, but it took around 10 seconds to fully load on 512K Broadband .

    I really like the design, I dig the two colour scheme, and theat image on the left is WOW! I think the nav links should perhaps rollover to white, rather than black, what do you think?

    3/5 as it is, perhaps use something to fill the right of the site? It looks rater empty in 1024 by 768.

    I changed it up a bit... better ?

    Edit: I still indent to optimize the images a bit better

    The only thing I'd do with that page is center it horizontally to minimize the whitespace effect. Other than that, go with it. That layout rocks. 5/5.

    Yeah, but on larger resolutions, there is still a huge gap on the right site, I wonder if you could get that imagew as the background? Though I guess the file-size would be a bit much...

    The painting is by Dong QiChang of the Ming Dynasty in China (1555-1637). I am allready using the full size of it, so there is not much to play around with while keeping it intact (aside from spliting it down the middle hehe), and It would not look good tiled.

    Take a look at this attachment. This is what I am currently trying to get to work. centered with a 100% height. It is giving me some problems since 100% height in all columns is being thrown off by the images in the sides, and the bamboo is the background of the body, so I cannot use the body bg for the repeating-y centered image.. if you know what I mean Any ideas ?

    I was able to get at least a closer result to what I originally wanted. I ditched the 100% height plan since it is not something CSS is always great at anyway.

    What do you mean exactly? The way theres no margin at the top of the page, but some on the bottom? It is intentional :P think it would look better with a top margin?

    No, I think it would look better without a bottom one .
