Website Design by...
The design of this site, and the tools I use.
This site was designed in December 2010, by me, Chris Granger, so if there are any mistakes in it's design, it's probably my fault !
If you have any questions or suggestions, additional material you would like added to the site, again - just get in touch with me .
If you spot any errors - PLEASE let me know immediately.
For those with a technical interest:
The site is intended to be designed as far as possible in CSS, and XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
I used Dreamweaver 8, which is getting a bit out of date now - the current version is now up to CS5, which is a bit pricey, but it's a very clever program.
Images are prepared using Paintshop Pro v6.00 (by JASC, who sold out to Corel. I also use Corel Paintshop Pro X2) when I need something a bit more exotic, like alpha transparency on a drop-shadow over variable background colour.
The stylesheets were written using dreamweaver, but I find it helpful sometimes to find new style elements using Topstyle Lite v 3.10.
To ftp files to the server, I used to use the free version of Filezilla v2.2.16 (now unavailable, since the launch of v3), but now I use Dreamweaver, which is faster, anyway.
Anything else you'd like to know - just drop me a line, and I'll try to give you an answer.
