Well,
I'm wondering what you thought about my site

http://www.codeweavers.nl

edit : New URL: http://62.166.3.44/codeweavers/images/v2.0/index.php
edit : Is this one better?

I'm scripting a language system in it now... so if you are a Dutch men... it will be in Dutch. Otherwise it will be in English.
And yes I know. My English is not so good.
And somebody will translate it for me, so please don’t reply with. Your English is bad. Or something. Because that is going to change.

It’s completely w3c valid.

Please tell me what you think about it.

Hi i like this type of stle apart from i dont like the colour combos such as purple and light blue!. Also the logo of a hand shake, does this fit your buisness?
And finnally maybe add a colour contrasting to purple like a cream or a light purple

Really tho its pretty good

Hi Black_Legon,
That's really a good effort. Following are my suggestions:
1. You need to change the Font color .Because of it the color combination has become dull.
2.Purple is ok but light blue is not going with purple you need to change it .
Overall a simple, neat site

Hi good work. Question for ya, why are you using frames? Because what you've created could have easily been done with tables or css.

Plus I think that search engines don't really like frames very much if i'm not mistaken

The images in the headers are nice but too busy for having text on top of it. Try to either dim the images, move the text someplace else or change the background image all together to a solid colour

tnx..
I will change the headers.. except the one for home.. that one is alright don't you think?

And because of my meta tags the google bot can search the pages in the frames.. but maybe I'll word with div's..

But what do you all think about the layout.. does that need to be changed to a more professional one? ore one that's stands out more?
Or do you think this will do it?

I am not too fond of the light purple/violet with the light blue of the banner color combo.. My very first impression when I saw the handshake image along with the color scheme, was that this site was for Jehova's Witnesses! :)

My father used to go to that church for a few years, and I remember all the "Watchtower" and "Awake" magazines had pastel color schemes and similar images as the handshake you used.

I don't really know code for the most part other than little snippets of this and that where I've had to learn something to fix an immediate problem. If I did know something about code/ the code you use, I would evaluate that more closely and give a critiqe.

Thanx for your reviews :)

Well.. I've changed the headers for home, portfolio and construction.
The same header.. but other colors. Better this way?

And i didn't know that from the handshake :).. but I don't think i'm gonna change that. Friends here and some on other fora liked it.. Not everyone associates it with Jehovah's Witnesses :p

I like the original better after you had done the modifications. Also, on both of the new pages you've made there are problems with alignment of images on the page, at least in my browser at this present moment..
For instance CodeWeavers_04.gif and the other images like it are not lining up correctly.

I like the trick of English or Dutch depending on your browser's language, but the site's background makes me feel like I am at the Optician's, trying to read " R - E - G - 7 - H - W " from six meters away..

I take it, the Contact Form is still under construction, right?

Also, could you give the cells a little bit of cellpadding? The "O"s and the "P"s are kind of putting their behind into the blue ribbons... :)

All in all, a nice work ...which needs some more work... :)

- optimize your images, specially in the first designs the header is over 45K

-I am not a fan of shadows, I can't stand them. and specially the inner shadows you have used everywhere to make the 3d effect. there are a lot of ways to have some cool 3d. check the tutorials on the internet.

-don't change the header image in each page. keep it the same. if you want to keep one of them i like the one in http://www.codeweavers.nl/ contact page.

and don't forget the KISS rule!!!

yeah KISS is good :). Change the colors :) I think nobody else mentioned that one :). It loads a bit slow on dialup if you can take a look at that .. but its not a big deal really. Good job.
