    Cleaning up code (debugging)

    Hi, I need the css of a calculator on my website (http://www.listlanguage.com/french.html) -top right of page- cleaned up as it displays badly. I also have the same calculator on another website of mine (http://www.exigotranslations.com/french_translation.htm) which displays well although I would like it the same size as the listlanguage one and also have a background color (preferably rounded edges).

    So in short the listlanguage calculator cleaned up with a background color (rounded edges). If someone could offer their services at a reasonable total cost/quote, that would be great.

    If you need more info, get back to me.

    Hi, I just have and it didn't look pretty, a long list of supposed errors. I'm not that capable a web designer as don't do it for work (am translator). What do you think to cleaning up the layout of the calculator, or that the least of my worries.

    Before fixing the CSS your sites will need the basic HTML code validated. Currently there are 417 errors on your first linked page and 25 Errors, 29 warnings on your second linked page.

    Once those issues are fixed the CSS can be repaired more effectively. What is your budget for these fixes and is your page generated with server-side language or are these simple HTML files? How soon do you want the cleanup to be finished? These factors would determine price for full HTML/CSS cleanup.

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}
    Seek and you shall find... basically:
