This is our current design for a restaurant website (1st page):


I don't need any comments about bad design/frames etc. as its all out of my
hands - we still work in dark ages of designers doing flats and clients
wanting what they see.

Its just my job to make it work - don't shoot the monkey

Now as a newcomer to evolt, i am very interested in all your articles on
accesibilty, 'no javascript links', validation etc.

We design for NN4 and above - which limits us with CSS etc.

So, how could i improve this type of website...

I've left it very basic - will swap all the dreamweaver code for custom
included code (does included code stay in cache - so will be less download).

First attempt at validation any ideas???:
