    First CSS based website

    Hi guys!

    First I want to thank all who have helped me here on the forums - without that help I wouldn't have made this!

    Ok, back on topic. I have finally coded the main page, which is W3C valid and should look good in most browsers (in IE 5.5 and below it won't). I would ask you to have a look and tell me what you think about the design, navigation, banner and what else u might have in mind.

    Remember that only the main page is finished, so you won't get to any of the pages linked to in the menu...Yet

    Thanks.

    Oh, and the link: http://www.xflightx.port10.com/test/main-layout.php

    Not 800x600 friendly.
    To dark for my liking, no hover on navigation.

    Pretty good for your first layout.

    Just how long do we have to be friendly to the 800x600 crowd? Let 'em scroll.

    Seriously though, I don't know any flight sim people using low res.

    Nice work, CaptainB. Good to see you here.

    True, but it is nice to design for everyone.
    Logo is quite big, might take long to load for dial up users.

    @twodayslate: Uhm, it's only 106 kb...I think that most users have broadband these days...And if they don't? Well, then it might not take that long anyways

    Thanks you guys for replying!

    Just telling you what I think, that does not mean you have to do it.

    FlightSimWorld has a much for cleaner feel.

    Do you think your own site has a "clean feel"?

    Neither is FlightSimWorld.com, so be fair, please.

    We were comparing both sites. They both had the same topic but looked different. Flightsim is lighter and xflight is darker.
