    I’m new here but love the CSS-Tricks website – the articles and snippets have been a huge help to me!

    I’m in the process of setting up a new website, although I’m not really an expert web designer. I was wondering if someone could take a look the HTML and CSS of my “under construction page” and let me know if I’ve made any great mistakes.

    I’m especially concerned about cross-browser compatibility issues and perhaps in some places my own CSS has been a bit messy and half-assed :)

    The website is:

    Thanks very much and glad to be a member here!


    The first step to check your HTML would be to check if it is all valid. Use the W3C Validation site for this… I see two errors on the home page with this method. But if you think like me, validation is more of a suggestion than an absolute.

    Other than that I think everything looks pretty good. Nice clean markup and css :)

    The only real suggestion I would make is to consider updating the page to HTML5. Which really is a pretty minor update when all you’ll need to do is change the html tag at the top and remove some of the close tags (i.e. <input/> should be <input> in HTML5). In future projects, a really good HTML5 starting point would be to use the HTML5 Boilerplate which also takes mobile platforms into consideration.


    Thanks very much for the help, Mottie. Glad it all looks to you. I will definitely update the page to HTML5 and use HTML5 Boilerplate in future!!
