    I don’t understand your question. What about the page is wrong? Or needs changing?

    Hmmmm…

    Personally, I think it looks fine. The one thing that I would do is swap where the image is and where the text is. So, I would prefer the text to be on the left and the image to be on the right.

    Beautifying it? I don’t really think there is much you can do other than changing the font using @font-face or something like that.

    You could also increase the line-height to something like 1.4 or 1.5 via CSS.

    Get rid of the text-shadow it makes the text look very fuzzy. It should not be used for whole blocks of text.

    Either change it all over to the left side like theDoc suggested or if you keep it in the same position make the text left align. European languages are read from left to right, right aligning your text makes it look weird.

    Add some padding between paragraphs, otherwise it just goes on and on and looks boring. You could also highlight some features by adding headings and then the text below, it would break up the monotony of your page.

    Thanks @TheDoc & @Virtual , I’ll take your advices… I think it looks better.

    I leave the text-shadow but I reduce it to 2px…

    Thanks
