1. The comment is used wrong. [edit] So, you fixed it. Good. [/edit]2. You have used table layout. No one needs a template for that. Anyone can easily get a WYSIWYG editor that will generate even more complex layout in seconds.3. The <small> element should be before the closing </body> tag.4. Why use presentational attributes? Ever heared of CSS?5. Why not enclose the links in lists, instead of plain links with <br />'s for new rows.6. What's the image for? How can you be sure that it will always be there? A basic template should only include things that it's most certain the user would keep.7. You've used quirked HTML. Why not XHTML instead? Or at least declare the HTML 4.8. No CSS attached. What's the point?9. Why post it here?10. "Do not remove the copyright"? You're kidding right?Anyone who wants to add some more?

well its to try to help people.I use tables for my menu links just make itborder="0"

Yeah we know and it is a nice thaught but it is better to let people do it them self anyways as that is how you learn.Also as mentioned your coding is far from the correct way of doing it so really your giving them a shortcut to a bad place to be.But it is nice that your are thinking of others and trying to help. :)

I'll refrain from making any further comments. The only thing I will point out that is one the most dangerous mistake is the use of the copyright statement. If you do not have a legally registered entity that can claim somehitng under a copyright, then it is very illegal to use the statement. Moreover, intellectual property can only be copyright protected if it is more or less and application or design of sort. Not saying that this could be copyrighted, but if it were, enforcing the copyright would be exponentially more challenging then the job Klenex faced when enforcing its copyright on facial tissue - just like Xerox has its issues with paper copies.Additionally, I am sure that the founders of w3schools.com would not appreciate the statement that implies you are an agent or representative of the company.There is no doubt your intention was good, so I just hope you understand everyone's feedback and do not take offense to it. This is, ironically, a great example of some of the complexities this industry presents.

I agree with a lot that has been said. A template is not a bad idea, and it would help beginners, but this particular one may not do the trick. But it brings up a good point. The community could take it upon ourselves to create a basic template. We could even just create a thread, start with a very basic shell, and have people make their own additions and post their new template as a reply, so that all additions can be seen and explained, and either used for later versions or not. If there is any interest in doing something like this, reply here and we can set up a new thread to start it off. The first step, other than creating a basic head and body, would be to decide what structural elements a basic page would need.Also, just as a minor point, it's better to post any code in a code box instead of a quote box because the code box preserves the indentation.

I really think that would be a good idea... we could post some css layouts, and other things. (i have one already that you can change the whole layout of the site by just switching stylesheets.)LG
