Thanks for the advice, I am definitely going to stick at this stuff!
I had a quick look at the podcast and sounds interesting so I am probably going to start listening in on that one.
I have quite a few relatives who know people who want sites so I am not short of clients to practise building and finding problems.
I would really like to learn jQuery, do you have any tips on how to get started with that ? I have looked at a few short tutorials and understand the very basics but haven’t had chance to play with it much so I don’t have much of a understanding of any of the commands.
