    Site Review Request

    www.abcdataworks.com

    Right now the links in my nav bar are not validating, saying I'm closing an <a> tag that isn't open, though those links work.

    I'd love to hear what you think about both the design and the code.

    Thanks much.

    Jeremy

    The site works well, in that it has the information, a navigation and the other elements required of a web page. But it lacks style. There are no graphics that I can see to 'jazz' up your page a little (if you don't know much about designing a site there are loads of free templates out there to get you started, and plenty of tutorials). At the moment it's very dull and boring. Also, I'd recommend not using that font because, once again, it's dull and boring and although it is likely to work for everyone I'd make your first choice something like Verdana, or Tahoma, which are a little more stylish but still commonly used.

    Add links to sites you have built and helped - show some imagery on the site.
    Get the user interacting with the site.

    Have a look at Suckerfish or HTML Dog for dynamic drop down list navigation.

    i like how your navigation shows what page your on however u should turn off the roleover for the page u are currently at. For example, right now your "home" link is light blue and takes up the entire navigation area. If u put your mouse over it the rollover effect makes it look funny.

    Your logo is not a very good advert for your design skills. Overall your site seems to be an advert for ms access. I would advise anybody who hopes to generate a large amount of traffic against the use of access, although it would depend on what they wanted the database for.
    In your portfolio of organisations helped, I would want a link to each, so that I could judge the results for myself.
