    needs work. lots of work.

    -don't use regular blue
    -especialy on a grey background
    -link color: light blue, yellow, green. not at all a good mix
    -top to bottom layout. screen space needs to used better.
    -logo needs a proper place (and replacement, but thats anothier thread)

    About your http://pxem.geoffers.uni.cc/ page, I think you've missed the point about ems... unless you also give information about the font being used, and in which context, you can't do a conversion to pixels...

    Code:
    <div style"font-size: 12px">
    <div style"font-size: 90%">
    
    <div style"font-size: 1em">
    
    How big is this text?
    
    Not 16px...
    
    </div>
    
    </div>
    </div>
    Later,

    Basically what I've done, still using blue, on blue background, with links as dark blue, purple, lighter blue and now there's no logo.

    Worse than that. Different browsers have different defauts... and users can override those defaults in a single click.

    It's not meant to go into that, it's just a basic converter as it was recommened to me by MindlessLemming to change from px to em so I made that converter.

    The layout of every site is well... bland. Switch it up a bit here and there. I notice you like to center everything. Why not try some different styles like two or three column layouts or a two column w/header and footer design. Things need some more dynamic, speaking in terms of graphics. It may just be me, but the everything centered look is a tad bit ... hmm... how to say it... ugly, with no offense intended. I'm sure you could spice it up. Just give it a try on one of the sites and see how it goes. Expand your skills! Who knows, it may even be a lot of fun!

    Convertor is really, erm, pointless. As mentioned before, different browsers have different defaults, and so do different OS's, plus then it also depends on the person's DPI settings. You can't do a basic or any type of calculation to be honest with you.

    You need some type of design or something. A background behind every line of text is ugly, everything center aligned is ugly, the colours are ugly

    The page you got linked to in your first post is the best I've seen yet. Try to play around with that in different designs, and then do different styles and designs for your other sites.

    Charset

    I'd like to suggest changing your character set from Cyrillic (ISO-8859-5) to Latin1 (ISO-8859-1); it's rather annoying to repeatedly being asked to download a character set for which is no appearent need.
    Regards,

    The F1 Site is definitely getting on the right track. Next thing I would recommend is to put a little more content on the front page. Where your text 'body' occurs you should add more to say so the whole section spans more then a single line. If you're feeling ambitious you could even divide that section into two columns and have one side stating your introductory content and the other containing something like (possibly) rotating featured pictures of F1 cars, etc. You could put thumbnail links to the larger versions and of course do some nice border work to divide it off from the left side. Keep in mind you'd only want one or two images that you could change now and then.

    I particularly like the FAQ page....
    I can read threw the whole page in 1.62 seconds...
    Is any content going to be introduced in there?
    Other than that, I think your pages lack of dynamicality..
    When I look at them, I feel like I'm seing a page, not a website.
    I say, if your site could be a book, it's not good!
    As for colours, I personally don't like them (exept for the games website, shich is nice, but very static...).
    If you have trouble with color, maybe something like this would help.
