basic level help with CSS and HTML

  • # February 5, 2010 at 4:19 am

    I was wondering if someone might look at my code and critique it (or point me in a direction where it can be). I have most of the site laid out as it is in the design, but I am not sure I have done it in the most efficient or correct way.

    I am also having issues with my footer and need some help with it.

    My html and css:

    I am working with safari and firefox, not to worried about IE yet as i just want to get it working.

    Thanks for any help

    the biggest thing i would say is use some more short hand in your css. for example instead of:

    border-bottom: #ffffff 1px
    border-bottom: dotted;


    border-bottom: 1px #ffffff dotted;

    the same can be done for backgrounds

    background-image: url(image location) repeat type background position;

    Certainly is a beautiful template to learn coding from. I love Brandon’s work.

    I don’t have time to go through it all at the moment, but you can start with correcting some of these 108 errors! … ne&group=0

    Thanks a lot for taking the time to look at it. I have taken it down now to work on it a little more
