Nope, you are not to hard..
There are plenty of coding bugs on Mortfiles, but its because its just a display page for the layout, not the actual page itself.
The many body tags and scrambled html is because I have toyed with SSI and been to lazy to remove the excess html, making multiple html show up as a result. I will confess I never cared much about standards or Validation services up until lately...Rebel at heart and all that...
When I said that I have seen some poor excuses for webpages I did not mean that ALL sites I have seen are horrible, but some are...And I dont mean the coding base, which probably are all good, more or less...I mean the overall layout.
Lets face it...If this site for instance were designed in bright yellow with dark geen text and purple links...would you consider it a serious website? probably not....Layout is everything.
Even if the coding is poor (which it should not be) you will still appear more serious with a good layout than you would with a solid coding base and a poor layout.
I know there are alot of knowledge on these forums and on other places on the web and I just wondered if there was a good place to post your resumé, or if one should be made....I did not mean that I should do it for you..
I take all critic as positive as long as you give me advice on how to correct my errors...I am not proud to admit I am wrong, I embrace the oppertunity to learn.
