They look different. Underneath they are almost exactly the same. In fact the HTML and CSS code has been copied directly from the site I built and mangled in the process. The site is still linking to the site I built because the couldn't work out what the mint directory was for and so I have had to disable the web site statistics from my site. stealing other peoples work is a crime. if they had asked, I would have gladly given them the basic code with explanations and then they wouldn't have broken my site. please learn from this that whilst viewing the source of another web site is a good way to learn how to do things copying it completely without understanding it and then claiming it for yourself is copyright infringement.
