I've changed the buttons...

As suggested.

Do they look any better?

Version 1: click here
Version 2: click here

Note that the new buttons only apply to the home page. If I get the thumbs up, I'll change the sub pages.

Yes, I like those.

(Here I am, slogging through CSS, overhauling an enitre website from the ground up... and you've changed a few buttons! LOL)

click here Transitional??

click here That's good.

I like the graduated buttons; but I suppose that I'm bound to since I suggested them :-)) Seriously, I *do* prefer the graduated buttons: they are far more interesting.

Doing coursework for a Flash course that I recently started. I'm well behind! I'm not a Flash fan, but I think if it's used in moderation it can look quite effective. Besides, I want to learn how to use it!

But these buttons have been niggling me.

XHTML 1.0 Transitional is less, um, strict than XHTML 1.0 Strict. Would you believe.

Don't let your coursework slip if it has a deadline. If you're busy on that, I won't be offended at all if you don't reply to the CSS thread for a few days. You've gone out of your way to be really helpful!

You *should* really be using Strict XHTML though....

I like the new buttons, they fit in with the general style of the site much better.

Again, an excellent well designed site.


  slightlymad 18:54 03 Sep 2006

It's going up...

  slightlymad 19:03 03 Sep 2006

So on the off chance anyone wants to know what I'm talking about, the old buttons are click here.

Thanks for voting, Ade, Penny and Rigga.

I use transitional for one reason: strict doesn't allow "target=" and I really, really object to external sites opening in the same window. As a user I *want* external links to open in a new window so I still code that way; hence the need for transitional rather than strict.

  slightlymad 20:06 03 Sep 2006

That's an interesting point, Penny, which I wasn't aware of.

I agree, and I'll stick with Transitional.

Oddly enough, TopStyle Pro (which I use as my editor) often reports that the 'doctype given is "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"', but that the document content looks like Strict.

I must be being quite hard on myself, then.
