    Need to remove 80% of the pics, as most of what you're showing can be accomplished with CSS and good XHTML @ 1/4 the resources used.

        Be careful though, don't change everything people tell you to.
        Remember, YOU need to be happy with the design too.

          He was happy with a sliced site. And learned sliced sites aren't good for future clients, and his own wallet, nevermind web standards (nothing is worse than a web designer getting laughed at being a amateur who doesn't know that sliced sites went out 5 years ago).

          So, yes, change is necessary here -- for $$, for easy of access, for showing he can do more than graphics. His future clients will need to know he can do more than whip out a banner (unless he specifies he's a graphic designer).

          No one says he doesn't need to like his work, but he needs to change the dependence on slices. Only way to effectively know this is ask for a review/critique and be a good sport about it.

            Oh well sliced design aren't really bad, and still works once in a while . Anyways I fixed the website, and now it even validates and all the pages under it. I also optimized the images so it should load faster than before.

              Just a quick little tip, I would try to edit your XHTML valid button so it looks more like your site, right now it doesn't really flow. I have the same problem on my site and was critiqued on it.

              By the way, looks nice

                Still needs work.



                W3C is very easy to validate. But it does little to explain what's wrong. As you can see above, there's 173 syntax warnings and even 1 error.

                HTML-Tidy is much more thorough and will spot mistakes unlike most other validators -- and helps you make accessible pages as well.
