am I mistaken or did you have one of your pages in English? I spotted a page the other day but now I don't see it, I could of course be mistaken. I look at so many pages it is easy to get mixed up.
Also I have tried to look at your source code to see your 'liquid' design, but couldn't get into it. The first thing I do is look at peoples code to see how they do things, then, try those things out for myself.
I code all of my pages in notepad using (as close as possible) xhtml and stylesheets. I am setting my pages using divs and position: absolute but would like my pages to take up percentage of page instead, as yours does, so that as you shrink the size of the window the information 'shuffles' along as well.
Any help gratefully received.
I have only one of my pages that have little content in English. It's the webcam page ( http://web.telia.com/~u97802964/webcam.html ). But since I write about html, xhtml, css and Internet security in the site, there is a lot of "Swenglish" and "Weblish" (as China Tea calls it) also. :)
To see how my code is built up, I guess you must also see the css file so you can understand what e.g. the different ID's and CLASS'es do. The CSS file is here: http://web.telia.com/~u97802964/style.css But caution, I don't know what happend if you try to open it in IE! I usualy open it in the Mozilla source window, if I want to look at it in the browser. You could download it and then open it in Notepad.
The 'liquid' width on my pages is on the top (#Heading) and the middle column (#Col2) The left and right columns has width's in pixels. At the time (maybe still is?) it was to hard to make them liquid also and get the same look in different browsers (e.g. IE) So in smaller screens, its the middle (wide) column that gets less wide. But you can't ever get a page equaly "good looking" in all screen sizes and resolutions. But at least the page is always accesible and less annoying for everybody, when you use liquid design and CSS :wink:
The first thing I do is look at peoples code to see how they do things, then, try those things out for myself.
That's how I started also :) Downloaded the source from a "good looking" page, and by making all kind of changes in the code with Notepad I could see what happened 8)
BTW, the CSS on my site is far from "good and perfect" It's the first pages where I used so much CSS and what I had learn until that time. And I'm still learning :roll:

Funny how a place with the least sunlight has the biggest sun dial in the world.
Human nature I suppose! :)
In Australia we don't need sun dials, just hats.
Would love to see the Auora Borialis, "northern Lights".
The webcam looks great. Its midnight your time so I can't see much. Nice to see you have a Sydney time difference there too :)

I was obviously mixed up, I did look at that page of yours but, alas, it wasn't the one I was thinking of.
I have looked at your css, and it does make sense to me I see where that is going. I really appreciate you doing that for me.
As far as good CSS and coding, I think we are all learning all the time, this forum is proof of that. It's a good job to as the W3C keep us on our toes.
I don't post on here very often, but I am a watcher who takes note of what is going on, and I thank everyone for being so helpful and open with their knowledge.
Thanks again for your help.
