  1. Eh. Bad font choice, firstly; the navigation looks pretty ugly too. Also, on anything larger then 800*600 it just looks cut-off. The code is cluttered, lakes both a DTD and any real use of CSS for layout in favor of tables, and the color scheme is pretty bland/ugly (next time try pulling colors from your header image for a nice green color scheme?). And, for reasons which escape me, you have a Javascript rollover menu which could have easily been done in CSS.

  2. I wouldn't hire you if I were a business. I'm looking at the design, full of clouds and...clouds and it is at odds with your statement of "clean and professional design". The site reminds me a lot of some personal homepages from the early 90s, and it just doesn't look very professional at all. Try looking at the sites of other web designers-they're clean, lots of whitespace, and uses effects sparingly. This is one site that should go back to the drawing board.

  3. I don't really get why there's a clock there, and the white background is jarring after the first page, which seems to be an experiment in the use of Photoshop filters. I read the hard-to-read arching text and I still have no clue what the point of this is-try making this site a bit more clear in purpose and less pretty eye-candy graphics.

  4. A calendar, a blog, a photo gallery, and OPTIONAL playlists. Make it so that you have to press play yourself. Also, come up with a new style-the template you have now is pretty ugly.

  5. The heck? What are you talking about? Dreamweaver is FTP. As for reasons, there's quite a few:

    - Heavy integration with the rest of Adobe CS3

    - Tag auto-closing

    - PHP, HTML, ASP, ASP.NET, ColdFusion, etc.

    - Years of polishing and next to no instability (hasn't crashed on me yet)

    - Basic page layouts to quickly get started

    - New Spry features that offer basic AJAX features in what I've found to be a quick and easy manner

    - Code snippets library (more useful then you'd think when you start going into heavy usage)

    - Extensions for more or less everything if you look

  6. Dreamweaver does that too, though; that's the thing. Arguably, Expression Web is just Microsoft playing catch-up again with products that were far behind the curve by putting out products that were slightly less far behind. I'll admit that Expression Web looks to be the best Microsoft product to date, but Dreamweaver still has the most features and has been doing what Expression is doing for a few versions now.

  7. Make the ul or ol element 100 px wide and tall, and float it to the left. Then float each li element to the left, and have each one be at 33% width.

  8. It's pretty ugly, honestly. The header is a poorly compressed JPEG, and the big blue bars on the sides just don't work. Once you get below the header, the site just goes flat-no real graphical touches or organization seems present; a few borders and background colors would have helped clarify grouping on this page.

    The news bar on the right is good, but the left side is disorganized and seemingly has no specific purpose. Remember, the more there is on a page, the less focus there is on the individual elements on a page. Finally, you should run the text through the spell checker; there are more then a few typos and grammatical mistakes on these pages.

  9. Use some actual graphics, for one; as it is, it's mostly greys and flat colours. Try coming up with a specific purpose in mind when you're designing it, as that will help you create a design that relates to the goal of the site. Look up some examples of design on the web-remember, good designers borrow, great designers steal.
