Absolute positioning inside relative position would be a good technique to use in this case. If you add position:relative; to #page_container in your CSS, you can use position:absolute; to position the #circle_img and #tag_img exactly where you want them to be.

Hi Travis, In this case I usually code the menu myself with Javascript, instead of using an out of the box script.

Very well said graphixboy ;) This is how I do it too.

Most of the time when I see prices for a website, you're butying a template with a homemade cms. The put your text on the site for free and there you go.

The process of making a good website for a client is a lot more complicated than that.

Maybe you could use the universal selector:

This code will target anything nested in your resultsText div:

.resultsText * {

}
  1. .resultsText * {
  2. /*your style*/
  3. }


You could try that ;)

I'm don't think it effects your SEO... but I'm not 100%

If you want to test it on your own computer, you must install PHP, Apache etc. One very easy all-in-one install pack is Foxserv: http://sourceforge.net/projects/foxserv/

I'm sorry to say this, but for a company, this site is just too simple.

I think PHP is more convenient than Javascript.

It is a serverside programming language so no one can see it (in the code).
If you want to make weblogs, webshops, log-in systems or anything with a database, PHP is very convenient to use. With just Javascript you won't be able to any of that.

the first thing to ask yourself when making a site is why people would come to your site? What does it offer? I wouldn't go to this site myself, why would other people?
