Hi Richard,

Very good work! Very nice web site!

My suggestions:

1. The XHTML 1.0 recommendation states that both lang and xml:lang 
attributes should be used when specifying the language of an element. 
The value of the xml:lang attribute takes precedence.


2. The style attribute has been used but a default style sheet 
language has not been defined (note that HTML Validator would not see 
this declaration if it is sent as an HTTP header by a web server). HTML 
4.01 and XHTML require this for valid documents.
For example, include this in the head section of your document to 
specify text/css as the default style sheet language: meta 
http-equiv=Content-Style-Type content=text/css /. See 
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/present/styles.html#default-style


Good luck,

John

sites need to be aesthetically pleasing as well as accessible and CSS 
and DOM scripting gives us more than enough power to do 
both.

agreed, 
It 
would be hard to get customer sign off on such adesign, 

even 
soits quick loading and accessible. 


Perhaps you could sit down with a graphic designer to work more 
visual elements into your site and improve the overall look and 
feel?

good 
idea:
another option is to look for pre-designedtemplates(cringe)-free or 
otherwise.

Speaking as the old fart with presbyopia, it wouldn't hurt your readability 
to go a shade or two darker on the light green text. Matter of fact, a 
slightly darker value of grey for the main text would improve things, as 
well. I mean, your site is about accessibility, right?  ;-)


Cheers,
Scott

2005-11-04 Thread Ryan Blunden



Hi Richard,

Your content is indeed usable, accessible, semantic and 
valid,but if I was a potential client of yours, I wouldn't be saying, 
'Wow, that site looks great, I hope my site will look like that'. I'm not trying 
to put you down, I'm simply giving you my 
honestopinion.

Now maybe I'm completely out of touch and maybe all our 
sites should look like Jacob Neilson's but from my experience, sites need to be 
aesthetically pleasing as well as accessible and CSS and DOM scripting gives us 
more than enough power to do both. Perhaps you could sit down with a graphic 
designer to work more visual elements into your site and improve the overall 
look and feel? I think it would be worthwhile.

Also, what is the business case for needing the W3C badges, 
really?

Best Regards,
Ryan
