I don't think your homepage is homely! I like your dragonfly
background. I'd change the yellow around buttons, but that's
just me. I found that my website evolved over the last 4
years as I added more to it and saw other websites that I
liked. Keep tweaking until you like it!
I do a website for the science teachers at my school using
Frontpage. Click on the link below or www.sciencetoybox.com
and Mrs. Lovdahl for my pages.
I gradually moved toward tables because I wanted a 3 to 4
column page. The left side is a shared border with a table
inserted that I manually insert links into. I didn't like the
navigation choices offered by Frontpage so I insert my links
This summer, I resized all my text (or lots of it) to 10 point
for most buttons and text and I use Verdana font. I read
somewhere that Verdana is easier to read online/onscreen. I
switched to 10 pt because most professional websites looked
smaller to me and fit on the screen better. I noticed that my
page looked very spread out and sparce when I used a larger font.
