Damsel in distres

Hi,
I have a 'takey' request, so appologies in advance... As a favour to a
friend, I designed a website of his sculpture and drawing. I built it
using a WYSIWYG program that I am not sure is too good. It displays
well using the browsers I use, on the computer I use, but I was
wondering whether you good folk could take a look on your machines and
report faults, or just things you don't like?
The website of sculpture and drawing is at:
http://www.3ene.com
Thanks - and if you need to know anything about sculpture or casting,
then join me at alt.sculpture and I'll be happy to return the favour!
Have a good New Year.
Mary

alt.html.critique is a more appropriate place for requests like these. A
more descriptive subject would also be appreciated.

There are a lot of issues to solve, if you created this website as a
favour to a friend and you have little or no interest in doing this more
often then you might want to leave it as it is. You have a lot of
work/learning to do if you do decide to tackle the issues.

Short comment:

1) HTML doesn't validate:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://www.3ene.com/
2) Mix of presentational markup and CSS, good quality HTML contains no
presentational code.
3) Font size if uncomfortably small for me (aka microfonts).
4) Fixed width layout, allowing the content to flow in the available
space is better.
5) Tables used for layout, a layout should be created with CSS.
6) Inline CSS should generally be avoided, externalizing the CSS is
generally the way to go.

The code your authoring tool produced is very poor, but it's poor form
to blame the tool.

I don't think it's bad. And the code is
surprisingly "slim" for a WYSIWYG output...
I like the "look and feel" of the pages. And some
of the sculptures are really cool!
What I don't like:
Your link text is overall fine, but links like
"link", "here" and "Read complete article" is no
good. Combined with underlined headings, it's a
bit noisy and confusing. Let the headings be links
instead (text page).
I believe Appologies is written with only one p?
And that's it... but you should get a decent text
editor and remove the font tags - if you want to
develop more webmastering skills.
"Takey" is unfamiliar to me (I'm Norwegian) - can
you explain the word for me?

I think that's meant to be "tacky".

No - its 'take'-y as in take not give, ie a selfish request.
Thanks for your help everyone - much appreciated.

I just looked at your site. Looks great.
I spent three months in Norway, and they were the happiest of my life.

I think the page is too long, you may want to split it into
logical sections (pages) and have a vertical menu to assist
users with navigation.

Did every one else miss this from the site - the fact that this guy
actually wants to live in a zoo?
