I'm thinking of making a website to occupy my time after my school exams...what colours do you people like to see on a site (eg. background, text etc) because sites have to look alright to the general population to be accepted...
what do cascading style sheets do?Originally posted by Ensign Paris
Never use frames, they are probably the worst thing ever made, try to use Cascading Style Sheets where ever possible they speed up the job in the long run.
hey kishba that is one nice site u hav there
i agree completely about using white... ALL text that you want a reader to look at and read should (i am not brave enough to say must) be black on white... it's okay to use other colors on the web site (even in the background of the page) as long as you put the important text in a table that has a white backgroundOriginally posted by macfreek57
its' been proven that white is absolutely the best background color for a webpage
+ it looks nice!
indeed. wow. that's one of the most visually interesting and kind of exciting sites i've seen. i love those colors.Originally posted by Zenith
What a great site..! Nice work with colorstudio.com, Classic.
CSS look the same in all browsers, it is not a new technology, it is quite old now!Originally posted by Choppaface
CSS will usually look different from browser to browser. if youre going to use a new technology like that, you will prolly be better off making different style sheets for different browsers.
frames arent horrible, its just people often misuse them. iframes are better, IMO, but not supported everywhere
check out styleboost.com.....tons of inspiration there
yes CSS is relatively old (in internet time...), but with people still on the net who have NS3 or IE4, its new to them, and don't count on your pages looking the same for them. and CSS does look slightly different in different browsers. pop http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/ in different browsers (from NS3/IE4 and up) and you will see different results. I'm getting some text clipping just looking at it in IE 6. doubt that W3C intended for that to happenOriginally posted by Ensign Paris

People cannot misuse frames because they are just plain bad, they create a BAD user experience.
