I just spent a few hours coming up with this page layout. Can you please have a look and tell me what you think so far. Suggestions for improvements etc.
Sorry about the logo, its too big at the moment so you may get a fuz around the outline. You can try right clicking it then hit properties then OK and it may clear.
Anyway let me have your reviews ??
P.S Content will obviously go in white area, I couldn't be bothered with that yet.

Get rid of the status text. They are annoying. Otherwise, the site is fine.
Yep the status text will be going. Its a redesign of the old site I did, so its from there.
<kill>status text></kill> :p
More reviews please !!

Looks good so far.... does there have to be an extra box at the bottom of every drop down menu though? the "Go" image is slightly out of line from the select boxes, and it might look better with the date on the other side of the login and basket boxes...
line 14: <table width="100%" height"1000" class="back" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" background="Images/header.gif" padding-left="0">
the first highlighted bit is missing the equals sign... i'm not sure if hieght is even valid on tables...?
the second is not html... thats a css thing, replace it with style="padding-left: 0;" i think...
also, no doctype declaration...
Fixed the code errors !! don't know how they got there !!
I will try your layout theory and see what it looks like.
Yer, those doctype declarations. um... well im not sure how they work ?? What should I put there ?? I have noticed on some sites they put them, but they don't validate properly when you look at their code ??

i'd use this:
<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
it basically tells the browser what language the code is in.... it goes on the first line of the html...
Anyone else want to review this for me please ?

I like everything but the logo in the upper left - it looks like a transparent .gif with the wrong color left around the edges.
Perhaps try recreating it transparent after changing the outside color to match the color it's on.
Yer the logo was abit rubbish, it was just temporary. I have put on a new one which is hopefully abit better.
What do you think of it now ??
