Hi,

You need a DOCTYPE and also make all your tags lowercase. Also don't use a table and use sprites for the rollovers, it'll save you a lot of time and JS. Finally put your CSS which you would have more of, if you use CSS for the rollovers in a different file.

There's more stuff, but it will be easier to identify them when you make the changes.

The Design is quite nice though I like it, maybe use a different body font, and some line spacing.

If you need any more help give me a shout. :icon_smile:

As a first website it's good. It does feel a bit squeezed and busy. . . but then it's aimed at young people!! There are a couple of lines going through tthe leaping guy you might want to lose.

As Chris says you should avoid using tables and the css should be in a separate folder but it's not a major problem.

Hey hi
Thanks vey much
I have validated the CSS as per W3C, however have been trying to validate the html and have changed it form html to xhtml - and have created just a test file for me
from 116 mistakes i got it down to 6 only - but still cannot figure out how to fix them - especially the ones with the tags-quite easy-but apparently not for mw
pls have a look when you have time here:

Use descriptive title tags for each image, I'm looking specifically at images such as your telephone number graphic
hi there
thanks a lot too for the comment - what do you mean by discriptive title tags....i think they are...
you mean each alt tag - thats what i've done....but i guess you mean somehting else

and the telephone graphic - quite a easy one-really just a PSD graphic...& bit of typography - basic
simple but not that bad

Do they operate all over the UK or just in one area?
I'm struggling to find a locality... oh wait - just saw the little map and postcodes...

It's not going to be very good trying to get local business on the search engines as people are more likely to search "Enfield Driving Instructors" than "Driving instruction EN1"

Definately push the nearby towns and cities.

Well done
Jen
