Summary of Content

Click here for information about this sectionWeb Development Resources. Web Design. Web Graphics.

These Web Development Resource pages are my main interest at the moment. Whilst I try to improve and develop this Site, I'm finding more and more tips, tricks and articles (mainly on the Web) created by people who've 'been there and done it' already.
There are Links to some really useful Web Sites covering design, development, and web graphics.

Information on Metatags (getting your site noticed), Frontpage tips and links and basically anything that catches my interest e.g. Hover Buttons, Web Colour palette. There's a Free Software Site Searching Utility Popular Link which is worth checking out (no Google sponsored ads here), and a Free Software Page Password Creator which though simple, does work effectively and is great at single page level.

My experiments with layouts, backgrounds, Home Pages and Menus. References for Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), Colour or Image Background choosers etc.. Show that elusive symbol by character entity etc.. Whilst trying to minimise the number of components that may interfere with 'plain' browsers (i.e., non script enabled) and general cross browser compatability, I have used scripts in various places to enhance or simplify operations. They should not prevent you from seeing the pages but they may not be as tidy as they would be if javascript was enabled. Also the examples in the javascript section will naturally not work, nor will the 'double click to return to the top of the page' function which most pages feature (you can use the up arrows at the foot of the page instead). Sorry if this causes any inconvenience.

Web Development Section's News & Update History

 10/2007  General - MS Expression is now my designer of choice. Life has become so much easier!

 10/2006  General - GMapez is continuing to capture my interest as a 'simple' Google mapping technique.

 08/2006  General - Two new items in my web life at the moment. One is Web CEO an extremely effective page analysis and optimisation tool. Takes some learning but its worth taking the time as it can make some dramatic effects to your page accessibility. The other item is my evaluation of Microsoft's Frontpage replacement. Expression Web Designer. I reckon it will catch on in a big way. Its more akin to Dreamweaver than a Frontpage upgrade. Its only a beta at the moment but already showing some excellent improvements in CSS management and design layout that will give Dreamweaver a run for its money. More later.

 06/2006  Design Section - A little section on Google Mapping which is currently appealing to my experimenting side.
 02/2006  Design Section - A new icon section - Finally sorted my icon collection and added a few more for good measure. Any icons used on this site will be found here, hopefully catalogued in a usable manner.
 12/2005  Doctor-html.com. An excellent single page analyser. Works for me.

 07/2005  Just completed a hybrid Page Search Utility.

 06/2005  I started to re-vamp this Resource Web section in 'June 05, so it was a bit 'fresher' looking. What a job its turned out to be! At least its made me review and update what I'd published during the last year or so. The first thing I noticed during this exercise was that by using what I had picked up over the last 18 months allowed me to produce a page using half the code of the original. This is not being fussy but it does allow the page to a little load faster and makes the code easier to maintain. Secondly, whilst Javascript is not an essential ingredient, it does allow those little extra touches that enhance your work. Mind you it is important that the page still appears and operates correctly without your browser being script enabled, albeit at a reduced level. Another small point, run a spelling checker over the page before you publish. You will be surprised how many 'typos' you've made.
