Hey,

I've just started working on my website and wanted to know if you think I am going in the wrong direction. I know that it is lacking in content at the moment, but do you all think the layout is ok etc?

Thanks

looks good, but the text could do with being a bit bigger; I'm not sure about on all systems, but on mine it's barely readable. also, the logo in the box on the top right repeats a bit - is there any reason it needs to be a background image and not embeded with an <img> tag?

finally, validate your html Wink

Thanks, what browser are you using and in what resolution?

EDIT: Have also changed the logo thing, does it still repeat now?

I agree the text is a bit hard to read. Due to a combination of its small size, a fairly light shade of grey, the lack of padding between the text and the borders and the fully justified alignment.

FYI: browser Safari 1.1 - resolution: 1280 x 1024

Oh and the logo no longer repeats for me.

I'm using MozillaFirebird, on Linux...1024x768

Code:
body {
...
font-size: xx-small;
 }

x-small (or even small) would be better Wink


edit: the logo's fixed here too

Text is a tad small and a tad hard to read. Like the design, though. Smile

Anyone know how to change this as I've been wanting to.

Try increasing the padding value in this class:

.blog{
border: #999999 1px dashed;
padding:2px;
}
