    New Age Music

    It is my first attempt to build an affiliate website, so any advice is welcome.

    colour scheme's ok ?
    size ?
    is it properly working in your brower ?
    enough content ?

    thanx ! ;)

    A few small issues: your headings are displayed with a leading '&nbsp', e.g. ' &nbspRELAXATION'. I'm guessing you've missed the ';' off the end of the &nbsp's.
    There also doesn't appear to be any way to get back to the front page once you start browsing.

    There are some coding errors too.

    Other than that, it looks great and there are no other problems when viewing with Firefox.

    thanx dj1471

    I indeed missed out on the ; after '&nbsp' .. :-s

    I looked at the coding errors .. pff .. I cant make much sense of that, I think I specified the wrong doctype .. maybe I shouldn't specify one at all .. ?

    Yup, I used a little css to get the background layout like this, as well is the link hover effects. But I have no clue how to put that in line 1 ;-)

    DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />


    The above I just copied from some webpage long ago .. and I dont think that I use html1 complient code .. lol :). I might wanna get some support in the design and devellopment corner for that...

    Just fixed the nbsp's.

    I am using a fade in and out effect that I knew worked for IE. Does it work for firefox too ??

    OK from looking at the code it's not XHTML, so replace the DOCTYPE with the following:
    
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/loose.dtd">
    
    HTML:
    then remove the extra gubbins from the <html> tag. That cuts the number of errors down considerably.

    What should be fading in/out?

    the background colors should be fading from one to the other when switching pages. It works for IE. But I have no clue for other browsers.

    I changed the doctype .. but there is still ~40 errors on there .. mainly tag errors where the validator hints like : </table>
    but as far as I recall .. that '>' should be in there ... maybe standards weren't made for me ;-) lol.

    thanx anyway ;-)

    There's no fading going on in Firefox. Page transitions have always been IE-only - I don't know of any way of doing it in other browsers.

    I'll try and explain some of the errors for you:
    #1 - remove the / from the end of the closing tag.

    #2 - what you've done there is invalid. You need to do:
    
    <style type="text/css">
    
    HTML:
    #3 & #4 - META tags must go within the HEAD, not the BODY.

    #5 - valign isn't a valid property. Use style="vertical-align: top" instead.

    #6 - Every image tag must have 'alt' specified. This is text displayed if the image can't be displayed for some reason and when the user holds their mouse over the image (in some browsers). It should be descriptive of what's in the image. E.g.
    
    <img src="whatever.png" alt="The site logo">
    
    HTML:
    That should be enough to be getting on with!

    There are spelling errors and the graphic is unappealing. it looks like a fairy tring to have sex with a winged salt shaker. I would try to find another.

    close but no cigar. :D
    It is a fairy riding a dragon fly. It is a small bronze statue. I was no yet sure if I wanted to use graphics on the index page at all.

    I will try to improve on the spelling though .. :cool:
