Here's a little about this website

Ever looked at a website and wondered how they got that effect, or why something works? I have, so this page is here to make it easier for anyone who's interested. I would like to extend my thanks to all the great people over at WebForumz, without whome I would still be fumbling in the dark with my web design and coding skills. If you have any questions or feedback please feel free to get in touch, you can do so over at my portfolio contact page.

The images

All web graphics and image formatting was done using The GIMP. Most of the layout and background images are in PNG format, photos and thumnails are JPEG.

HTML and CSS

This site uses HTML 4.01 Strict and CSS code. Practically all of the layout, backgrounds, and formatting is handled by the stylesheet. I am using CSS opacity features with my thumbnail images, this is not in the CSS 2.1 specification and the only reason why my CSS does not validate, however most browsers do support it.

Image swapping

I am employing a simple bit of javascript code to swap out the main image and it's description, it is contained in each page header as 'thefunction'.
