    http://todaysendmusic.com


    i need to get this site reviewed for a couple of things:
    1) layout
    2) navigation(convenience/inconvenience)
    3) cross-browser compatible(most likely very low due to the use of frames)
    4) user friendliness

    this is one of my clients sites i have been working on for a while and i just needed to know how well it is for people viewing it other than on mine or my client's cp.

    thanx

    why use a splash screen?

    and why use frames?,

    and as you say, the page isn't very cross-browser compatible.( not because of the frames, but the coding)
    several of the pictures doesn't load in mozillaFB and opera,
    menu isn't showing in Konqueror

    red text on black background is not very good either hard to read.

    so one advice clean up the code and get rid of the frames.

    Layout
    Using frames can lead to a big hole. Meaning, friendly search engine won't be able to index your site and add your pages in their webpage. Not unless if the spider came from a large nest of search engines, this wont be a problem. just a thought

    Navigation
    It's not pretty convenient with me because I'm seeing a black background with no extra color to share the interactivity with your navigation.

    Cross Browser Compatible.
    No comment.

    User Friendliness.
    Just my 2 cents.

    Good luck in your future revision.

    ummm...thanx...?
    i myself would not have chosen to do so either(the frames)....however, my client wanted me to do so for what he calls 'load-time' purposes. as for the other stuff....i believe some of the problems you are talking about may be reflected through my CSS coding, becuz it looks fine and perfectly aligned on three of my computers under 1024x768 and 800x600 resolutions. and as for my javascript coding....im still working on getting them to be more flexible with multiple browsers. but what i failed to specifically mention is the fact that im under strict 'commands' and guidlines as to what they want me to make everything look like and set up like. cuz im not much of a web-designer, just a web-developer. but anyway, ill try to clean it up a bit with what i can do. the only prob us that their hosting their site under geocities....and im not too happy with geocities' performance at times, especially their low file-type tolerability for paid sites and their history of the disappearing file phenomena. by the way Akh, i dont think the majority of internet viewers browse with things like konqueror, and the pictures should load now. at the moment you checked i was prolly re-uploading the newer imgs.

    no the pictures do still not load.
    probably because of the trailing ../ in the images path's

    lots of wrong css,

    use of the same id for several elements,

    lack of length values. px % or em, for
    several elements, ( both in height/widths and postions)

    wrong id names.
    from http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/types.html#h-6.2

    ID and NAME tokens must begin with a letter ([A-Za-z]) and may be followed by any number of letters, digits ([0-9]), hyphens ("-"), underscores ("_"), colons (":"), and periods (".").
    this causes mozilla to ignore style,
    see attached image, viewing the news page.

    i would recomend that you check both your html and css with w3c.org's validators
