I just recently got into web design and I can't get enough of it. blink.gif I decided to take it on as a side profession. I created a website for my own business, this is probably my best piece of work so far. Would like some ideas, comments, suggestions and anything to improve it.

Don't make web pages entirely out of images. Only use images for decoration and such, and use real text for content.

What are the downfalls of that?

Also, does the favicon display for you? I believe I implemented to code correctly, but I don't see it using FireFox.

That without images, especially images without alt text, there won't be any content at all. That's what people using a screen reader and search engines will get - nothing. Even if images are loaded, people aren't able to copy text, which they may well want to, for example an address. Any presumptive customer who realizes how your own page is done and the implications of that would be scared off, and rightly so, I'm afraid.

Yes, I see it.

I don't see the favicon (Safari & Firefox on Mac).

See: http://www.w3.org/2005/10/howto-favicon and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon .

I'm not sure what's up with the favicon. Firefox won't display it, either as a favicon or when I enter the URL directly. Chrome displays it when I enter the URL directly, but not as a favicon. Safari and Opera display it fine.

The only thing I can see is that you send the image as
Content-Type: image/x-icon
rather than as
Content-Type: image/vnd.microsoft.icon

I thought image/x-icon was the way to do it. Has that changed?
Darin McGrew
According to Wikipedia, the type image/vnd.microsoft.icon was registered in 2003. Ironically, MSIE seems unable to display ICO images in an img element unless the non-standard image/x-icon type is used. But I can't imagine why Firefox and Chrome would discontinue support for the image/x-icon type. I'm really grasping at straws though...

Thanks. It's tiresome, this dance.

It looks like that you have designed your complete site in Photoshop and pasted the images on webpage.

It is really bad way of making website.

Furthermore your site will not come up in Google as google don't index images for search. It only index written content and if your site cannot be found by Google then what is the use of making it.
