My God man, Kevlar's site is the coolest site I've ever seen. When I fist saw it, I knew Kevlar set a new standard to Tread Marks website design. I redid my site partially because Kevlar's looked so cool; and it still pails in comparison

not to put Matrix's site down at all either. Since he's very artistic, his site is in a class of its own

My philosophy is more of "If I can do it with a table, why bother with anything else "

good call coax... the mark of webdesign isnt an accurate science since theres many good ways to make sites. I dont use frames or tables cos basically i hate em ! dmf is a content heavy site but most of my sites load up in an average 15 seconds on 56k which is actually pretty good.

If theres meta tags, keywords, search engine entries, banner swaps, effort in pushing with loads of text to scan thru, sites should rank quite well in engines and be informative with great content. The actual design is largly superficial.

Its to be reasonable fast
Built with narrowband users in mind
Informative
Well laid out

Graphics and eye candy actually come in last place till were all on broadband access. Rule of thumb here is optimise any images as best you can while retaining quality. most of my images are 2 to 10k and have a 56k load of 2 to 5 seconds.

I also am not a fan of image slicing with tables - far easier to do one image and place hotspots on it.
