    Sheer quality HTML

    I had to share this. This is from our excuse of a website. Just check out the sheer quality of the HTML here. I'm just going through it now and trying to clean it up. It's an uphill struggle to say the least :|

    @norphy. if you're using dreamweaver there's an extension called something like "clean up front page" which should go through the site like a dose of salts. I got a copy somewhere.

    @indiegirl. didn't see any it techie vacancies there. lol

    I had to fight tooth and nail for over a year to get our content. And then I heard that the question was asked "why had it taken so long to get the new website launched". Grrrrr.

    Yet if a teacher requests their computer needs looking at - does it take us techies or NMs a year to look at it? Nope.

    @webman, but it was worth it. good looking site, easy to navigate. did you design it from scratch or use a cms, if you don't mind me asking?

    @beeswax: I heavily modified a basic CSS column layout I found somewhere on the web and made it into a template for the Website Baker CMS (PHP + MySQL). It runs on IIS which is why it may appear slow. :?

    Getting rid of all the nbsp tags shaved 20k from the size of the page by itself

    Re: Sheer quality HTML

    I've still got our old web site backed up - happy to let you have it. May take a little work changing it to look how you want and the menu requires 'So-Think' add-on to DW but it may save you some work and possibly some brownie points.

    Maybe we should have a recyled web site section?

    Well, I've got it down to 126kb from more than 600kb. It doesn't look identical but its close enough and I've now had enough of it
