Actually, CSS is just a means of defining the look of your site and having it stored in one place for easy updating and changing. Learning the language won't make your site look better, just make it easier to manage the look that you create.

But, I beg of you: DON'T USE INLINE STYLES when you learn CSS. Okay? Okay.

Sites like yours make up a large portion of personal pages out there on the net. You are just starting out and it seems to be a good start. Continue to learn HTML and such, and your site will only get better. Use communities like this to hone your skills and soon that homepage will stand out from others.

I think my biggest concern is that the text is so hard to read. The reason red on black is bad is because it hurts the eyes to try to read it. Some of your other text is pretty tough too. That's why you'll see more people these days leaning towards grey on black instead... it's not so glaring. Black is a tough background colour to work with, but you can make it work if you experiment with different colours and fonts. Be kind to the eyes of your visitors. :)

and welcome to dreamincode.

I like that much better than the first page you had posted! I don't like the purple text on the black background. I would probably make it the same color as the text in your menu bar at the top, and change the font to something other than times roman. (try verdana if you don't have any ideas)

That is some nice improvement overall however! :)

i tried making the text the same as the buttons, but dang, thats hard on the eyes!! im trying to make the scheme go with the picture of DP on the main page, so im thinking find another bg color for the table?

abadi mt bold is probably not a good choice simce a lot of people are bound to not have that font. I would stick with verdana, arial, times, or courier. Also, I didn't mean the same font as the menu bar, just a different color like gray or tan.

Just play with it a little bit.

Much better than the first... Your skills are greatly improving, just keep an eye for anything that looks odd, something like colors tha don't mix outside the web (they might look good to you but others will find them annoying)...

Cheers Sam
