No, you're not alone. I'm not redesigning your website, either tongue

Well my old layout and design is amatuerish and quite pathetic. I've been wanting to do a new version for some time. (Plus I've said on a number of occasions that I'd redesign it to use CSS when I felt Netsurf had been developed far enough - and that point was reached a long time back.)

I'm not particularly keen on the way I've done the logo in the new design, but I've done it that way partly for technical reasons - which include my inexpertise with CSS. smile

I just had to convert a theme from one part of our system at work to another. It's essentially a table to make a rounded-corner box.

* It worked fine in IE.
* It left gaps between the rows in Firefox.

After some jiggling with the code I used the Web Developer plugin to outline the table cells, and find it's leaving space below the images for text; later I find reducing the text size reduces the gap, only there's no text there - no spaces (I stripped out everything!), no text in alt tags, nothing.

I got the web designer chappy to check, and he saved it to disc, loaded it in Dreamweaver... and it worked fine when he saved it back out.

So, the HTML Tidy plugin told me it was valid HTML, but I used it to reformat the code - essentially adding back in all the spaces I'd stripped out. And on reloading the page, it worked in Firefox.

But not in IE.

So I then had to fix IE by making the "text" 1pt, even though there wasn't supposed to be any text in there.

All for one fucking table so someone can say "this is my domain - I don't want it, do you want to buy it?"

Try adding
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
at the top of the page, it alters Firefox's table layout model considerably.

On my most recent design, without it, Firefox was inserting 'font sized' height into cells that had no text in.

It already had a transitional declaration, but it was XHTML not HTML, which might have made a difference. But anyway, it's fixed; a combination of HTML Tidy reformatting and some style tags got it working.

Not for the first time I'm having a go redesigning my website.
It's nearly 6 years since I last redesigned it, and I'm getting bored of green!

Time for some mockups.

I've given up trying to do my own designs, I'm raiding free template libraries.

That is pretty easily fixed. But at the moment I'm just looking at design. To be honest, I might stick with fixed width, by the time most of my pages scale up to 1920 wide the content becomes less easy to read, not more.

Shouldn't that be unfixed?...

...oh, perhaps "fixed" was right, then.

Number 3 was my favourite, so I've bunged it into my CMS, with some actual content.

It is very restrained compared to the green site big grin
