Not sure exactly what you were looking for, the site seems clean. The only thing I'd recommend is to remove the <blink> from the side menu. Makes it seems a little cheap and a bit more of an advertising site as opposed to a professional looking site.

An extra note, I ran the CSS and HTML Validation tools found on W3C
CSS: http://jigsaw.w3.org...arning=&lang=en

Note: Seems all of those are just missing a px after the size, be sure to include that. For example make it: Margin-top: 5px 5px

HTML: http://validator.w3....=Inline&group=0

I never read through the HTML one because there were too many errors, try to make it a little cleaner and I'd gladly look at anything you're struggling with.

And just for the future, maybe a thought, a mobile browser, for iphones or androids, I ran the W3C check on that too: http://validator.w3....bertiedogs.com/

FrontPage is the world's WORSE web editor and is really outdated. Word, WordPad, Publisher and even the infamous FrontPage, including many Microsoft web editors should NEVER be used for web pages. They guarantee that your web pages will NOT be cross-browser compatible because of all the Microsoft Schema code it adds. Only IE and Maxthon understand this code. Additionally, FrontPage requires server extensions be installed to work correctly.

38 CSS Errors


39 HTML Errors

No way will you be cross-browser compatible with these errors. Document type is incorrect to start off with. HTML Tidy flagged 95 problems. We can help you straighten some of these out, but you need to get a REAL web editor.

Validate and correct as many as you are responsible for. "Errors" like any Facepage code can be ignored:

You're welcome. Really hated to put down Frontpage and the others, but they really are not very good. The Visual (WYSIWYG) Editors are ok up to a point. Any problems with your code in Code Source View will be messed up again when you return to the Visual Editor mode. It is much, much better to learn HTML and CSS, code in Code Source View and Preview your page(s) in your own browser. Several browsers if you want to check cross-browser compatibility.

Good luck.
