  1. Hey Darkwave - thanks very much - that's exactly the sort of thing I'm after - wish I could get you to write more. I can see from the HTML and CSS reference manuals which elements can be colored (fonts, backgrounds, borders, etc.) and I can identify a Palette that I like from colorcombos.com but its the "deciding which elements I want to be noticed" part where I get stuck and any general tips (like the one you've provided above) would be a huge help. Also, if you could point me in the direction of any links you've found useful that would also be a big help - I've spent many hours looking, bu
  2. Fair enough -- that's the approach I used on the current look of my website (www.hazen.co.nz) but I'm not completely happy with it. Guess I'll just keep pluggin away. thanks for the reply. - Deck
  3. Hi folks, Good of you to provide this section of the forum, but looking down the list I didn't see much actual criticism. First off let me say that to the extent that you have provide some people with useful information you are to be congratulated, I know it's a big job.

Looking at your chops I'd have thought you'd be the one to provide it - but never mind - fiddling is fun. cheers, -- Deck
  5. Sure - thanks for the reply -- the pallet I'd like to play with is the terracotta sunrise on http://www.colorschemer.com/schemes/index.php?start=90 and the website I'd like to apply it to is www.hazen.co.nz Any forward progress would be greatly appreciated. - Deck
  6. Hi All, I don't know much about color, but i know what I like -- I've got a nice pallet I want to try but how do I decide which elements to apply a particular color to? Are there any rules for such things? Some choices are easy -- I've got a black background so obviously I need a light text color, and same with the link colors, but what about borders and horizontal lines etc. All suggestions gratefully received. - Deck
  7. Sorry to start off my first post of such a negative note, but I absolutely must protest the following excerpt from you "HTML attributes reference" : ==========================================Attribute Value Descriptionclass classname Specifies a classname for an elementid id Specifies a unique id for an elementstyle style_definition Specifies an inline style for an elementtitle tooltip_text Specifies extra information about an element (displayed as a tool tip)==========================================This tells me absolutely nothing!
