Any questions please ask in the thread. :D

There is always someone that asks questions about the rules, and I hate for it to be me.

But would acceptable image types be: jpg, gif, png, bmp, and ... swf? :D
(swf if only used for visual aid and not for functionality?)

Looking at the rules it doesn't state that you need to create 2 seperate websites for each resolution, just to code your site with those resolutions in mind. I am assuming no unnecessary scroll bars and white space.

Hi guys :D

5N4K3: Theres always one asking the hard questions :lol: No swf this time round, just straight out html/css and images (but we will do another flash comp very soon!)

cowkiller: Just one site that will be usable for those on both the resolutions listed, you may need to adapt your ideas to do this.

musik, do you want the images in a separate directory named "images" like last time?

I'll be putting everyone's entries into a folder titled with their username. After last times learning curve. I think having them all in the one directory is much easier than seperate folders, then I can just upload them in one go to a username, named folder.

Hope that makes sense :D

I just want to make sure, the use of JavaScript is not allowed?
Since:

:lol:

Surprised you never got beat up by Musik there. I would leave a post along those lines and i would get a reply like...

"nobody is EVER going to critises your work. This is just for fun etc etc etc

:beats with broomstick:"

:wink:

Good luck all. I think i will give this comp a miss as i am not quite that great at web design just using HTML. I guess i have skipped HTML and started to learn PHP and would probably go insane if i had to design a 3 page site in HTML :lol:

Could you please give exact definitions of the terms 'HTML', 'CSS', and 'images'? Specifically, what file formats are permissible for images? Must the HTML and CSS conform to some W3C recommendation, and if so, which recommendations do we have to choose from? (If not, then what should we use to define what is meant by 'HTML' and 'CSS'?)

Hiya Sam,

I've put these limits on so its 'back to basics' somewhat, so no php, flash etc. Not sure how else to describe HTML (.htm or .html) and CSS. (.css)

Images can be anything that shows up on a website so they are going to be .png, .gif or .jpg

Hope that helps!

If we take the first design competition as a model, Sam, I believe we were more interested in (and people voted for) the overall final product, and not so much the code that was used to get there. So basically, HTML or XHTML would satisfy the code requirements, And I suppose it would only make sense to use CSS2 if you intend to use CSS (Using CSS isn't required). Some people wrote their code to validate to the doctype they chose, where others didn't. I would say work towards having the best "final product".

If you can do it with CSS only, yes, but not likely since DHTML assumes javascript needs to be used.

Nice going so far to both of you. I would encourage you to work on that cross-compatibility issue, tho. That's an important piece of design! As I see a great similarity between this and the first competition, I'll be sitting this one out if a decent turnout shows. I might throw something together towards the end to encourage more participation if needed, but hopefully the submittals will be numerous. Good luck to all!
