Very well done BAZ!

Just one small suggestion.... in text-only areas use text not images. The site will load faster and it also makes future updates easier. If you need any help feel free to contact me on <a href="mailto:josefeg@onvol.net">this email address</a> or on msn.

Thanks man. I wasnt sure how to lock the text size though and I didnt want the increased text size to throw the page out of whack which it was doing. I know there is a way around it but I still havn't figured it out yet :P

You can use tables for that (you can set the size of the table using the width attribute). To set the size of the font and the font itself the best thing to do is to use cascading style sheets.

I think Dreamweaver does the cascading style sheet for you (may be mistaken, as I have never used it). If you want to do the table thing manually just do this:

<pre>

&lttable width="10px" border="0"&gt
&lttr&gt
&lttd&gtYour text here&lt/td&gt
&lt/tr&gt
&lt/table&gt

</pre>

You don't need to leave a blank line between the tags... lol I don't know why it came like this.

Oh yeah and where it says width="10px" you should put the width in pixels of you choice instead of the 10

Fantastic job, Baz! If you need HTML help, just send me a message either here or to invictus@shaw.ca . I've been designing websites since about 1996, so there is nothing HTML that I don't know.

Wicked thanks guys. I know my design but html I need to brush up on.. thats why i kinda depend on programs like Fireworks and Dreamweaver. But it would be good for me to know all this stuff to get better.

Baz, to lock font sizes and the like just use Style Sheets (.css). In order to do so, make a new file in any text editing program. Make a line that looks identical to this:

.font {font-family: verdana; font-size: 70%; margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;}

For a quick explanation:

font-family Simply the font you want to use.
font-size As suggested, the font size.
margin This is the margin to be set for the text from the bottom, top, left and right of the table surrounding.

Adjust the size accordingly. The word I bolded up there, in this case 'font' can be changed to whatever you want to. This is just the variable to refer to in the HTML. To put the style sheet into effect with the HTML, simple type <p class="font"> before your text in the HTML. Again, the word font may be changed to whatever you like. If there is a section you would like to be bolded, simply add bold; to the statement. It would then look like this:

{font-family: verdana; font-size: 70%; font-weight: bold; margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;}

You will notice each selection is divided with a " ; " If there is any other commands you need to incorporate into the CSS let me know and I will you the according tag.

In order to put the CSS into effect, you need to put the following into the HTML, in the <HEAD>:

< link name="name" rel="StyleSheet" type="text/css" href="link.css" >

name may be changed to what you would like you name your stylesheet, and link is the directory to your .css file.

Hope that helped.

**EDIT**

In the above HTML code, remove the space after the < and before the >. I had to add spaces in order for it to show in the thread.
