    Hello everyone!
    I'm currently designing my new website, and a beta version is up and running at this address:
    http://artur.meinild.net/
    One of the main issues about this site is cross-browser compatibility. I really want to show that you can build a rather hi-tech website with advanced image mouse-overs and dynamic html scripting (will be added), with everything build around the style sheet level 2 specification - and still maintain complete device independency (among the browsers who support the used technologies of course)...
    So please check out the site with different browsers and at different resolutions, and tell me if something is not good. Remember I'm still adding features, as well as content to the site.
    Thanx in advance, Artur.

    oh yeah, I forgot to mention: I have tested it myself on Netscape 6 and IE 6, but it's still nice to know that it runs on different systems... Anybody *not* using IE that want to take a look? [​IMG]

    Windows 98SE, 1152x864, Explorer 5.0

    Some thoughts:

    I think there's too much border, there could be more room for the middle.

    The horizontal grey lines on the background make it harder to read and causes the screen to vibrate.

    The buttons on the navi circle pad are all greek to me. (I don't understand them)

    My cursor dissapears when it goes on the grey/white navi bar. This is due to my mouse cursor setting that shows the opposite color. (transparent)

    Anyways, keep up the good work.

    When I click "l" on the pad, it inserts a white bar 3cm below the circular navigation pad. All other navigation buttons work well. I am using...

    IE 6.0.2600.0000
    WIN XP home
    XGA resolution (1024x768)

    I second the notion about the borders outside of the "pipe" being excessive. You could cut that down to 20-30 pixels and be just fine.

    Also, I'd suggest using a javascript to pre-load your hover images in the Greek menu. Even if it only takes a second to download the image for the hover, it's noticeable. Pre-load those puppies since they're small.

    I'm a minority user here - so you should enjoy my prospective.

    On my flat panel studio display, running 1280x1024, my Macintosh displays the site very well using Chimera 0.5
