So far everything validates, I took some advice and make the menu static, and got rid of some annoying empty space. What Im concerned with is how the SEO is for this ( Im kinda new at that) and if it works cross browser wise.
the sexy tan person is our model, all the photography on this website was taken in the studio by a photographer, as for the colors... i tend to agree, but I didnt actually design this site and dont really have any control over that, I just needed to make it work, it was done by my coworker and the owner ( ofcourse) is in love with it. As for the logo, do you suggest I make it smaller? How would I increase seo? I appreciate the critic, One thing I wanted to do was make it so that the content cant scroll above the menu, but I havent figured out how to do that yet.
OK, since you said you didn’t design it I suppose you want a review on your coding? Overall it seems OK but there are a couple of issues.
You should always, always, always use a strict document type declaration. “Transitional” is for losers. You aren’t transitioning an old website with non-standardized HTML to standards compliant code, are you? So, no reason for a transitional doctype.
You have a few validation errors on all or most of your pages.
Write semantic HTML. Look at the ladies’ nails page and switch off your styles (in Firefox you can do “View > Page Style > No Style”); look at the content and tell me how much a luxurious classic pedicure costs. You see, there is no relation of any item to any price whatsoever, there are just items and random prices in separate lists. Semantically these should all be tables.
Don’t use to adjust your layout. Use floats, margin, padding, or text alignment where appropriate. For example on the ladies’ nails page that whole thing could be marked up as tables like so:
You can style the table header cells (th) and the data cells (td) differently, i. e. assign a certain width to them and/or give them some padding or right-align the right column in the tables. This way the data looks just like now but has a clear relation to each other. And no redundant and meaningless non-breaking space characters are there. The same counts for all the other pages.
I'd probably make the background solid dark grey and then move the logo up to the top right above the navigation. Then maybe add a border around the image in the middle, maybe even slightly curved edges.
Awesome, thanks for the critic.. Couple of questions, what the difference between strict and transitional doc types? Also, how would I style the table to look just like the page looks right now ( ill get *****ed at if its not..) Y'see, Im really more of a print designer, but since I know a lil about web, I kinda got thrown into the whole ( i need a website in a week) crap, Im trying to learn on my own, and i think im getting better, but its a longggg road haha.
