    thanks all of you that helped

    I think the contrasting in the colors can be better. It's a nice layout though.. There is no excuse for invalid code though there is always a way around the problems.

          Hmmm... the colors aren't really that bad, but I dunno. They seem... I can't put my finger on it, though.

          Nice clean design, though. But, you need a Doctype, not sure why it seems to be messing with your JS, though.

          Also, you have your whole content block nested inside a <span>, as I recall (now, don't trust my recalling, it's very unreliable), you can't have block-level elements nested inside inline; i.e., can't have <p> tags inside <span>, that may be one reason why your code isn't validating.

          P.S., custom right-click menu, eh...? Blah! I'm not feelin' it... luckily I can disable it with a nice li'l trick I picked up a few days back.

          This is like the third edit. If you increase the text-size any, your menu and logo text overlaps the content.

            Maybe make the background of the area with text a lighter shade of green.

              Well, firstly you can easily validate it 1.0 transitional! And use <script> ..

              I believe embed is going to be used for that in the future though?? I probably should read up on more of that whenever I get the time.


              Anyways as for your colors, my website has green and light gray and (I think) contrasts well -- http://mhtml.ithium.net/class_test.php .. I've gone for white for most of the content area with dark green for the text as it contrasts well, but the main green spectrum I've used to highlight stuff.. You want to show off your colors but you don't want to go overboard!

                Kinda off topic, but I was just browsing your site there, Mhtml, and I really like the color scheme. Mad props. I always have trouble with color schemes and such; what colors to use, how many different colors to use, which elements should have which colors, which elements should have the same color as another element...

                When ya gonna add some different stylesheets? Currently you have none and then you have the default... I wanna see something in red and black!

                  Yeah red and black sounds good. I've been focussing on getting the site ready for release before adding more styles..

                    What do you mean Paul?
                    But, you need a Doctype, not sure why it seems to be messing with your JS, though.
                    I dont have a doctype because it wont allow my right click script to function.
                    P.S., custom right-click menu, eh...? Blah! I'm not feelin' it... luckily I can disable it with a nice li'l trick I picked up a few days back.
                    Dont worry it wont stay like this (Youll only get the custom rightcick if you choose to do so )

                    And MHTML can you be so kind and teach me how you did that style switcher (its exactly what I need)

                    thanks for the constructive critisism

                      nyways as for your colors, my website has green and light gray and (I think) contrasts well -- http://mhtml.ithium.net/class_test.php .. I've gone for white for most of the content area with dark green for the text as it contrasts well, but the main green spectrum I've used to highlight stuff..

                      But i CAN NOT use anything else then shades of green and silver

                      and Antoniohawk ill think about what you told me

                      Maybe make the background of the area with text a lighter shade of green.
                      alos somebody said

                        About the colors: I think it's the shades. Like Antonionhawk said, maybe a lighter shade of green? I'm not sure I'd personally go with silver and green, but there's nothin' you can do about it.

                        The Doctype: That's really odd, must be something in the script that throws it off with a Doctype.

                        Custom Context Menu: Alright! Awesome, users have a choice. Wo0T! Nice.

                        Text overlapping: It's probably because the content is positioned absolutely 127px from the left. I believe if you change the absolute positioning values from px to em then that problem will virtually disappear.

                          Also, the other thing, as I said in one of my other posts, is you've got block-level tags nested inside inline tags -- I don't believe you can do that. You were having a problem with validation in another thread, and I believe that's your problem.

                            I was able to validate the page with an XHTML 1.0 Trans. Doctype. And the JS Console in Firebird says that "hide is not defined". So you could post your Custom Context menu script in the JS forum to see if someone can help you. I can't; I'm only learning.

                            But that's the dillio.
