    Your anchor tag for RAM prices on the rise looks like:
    <a href="(Empty Reference!)" name=Anchor>

    and you have no anchor tag for the creative tip of the day.

    Use the view HTML option in your editor and you will find that you have no ancher tag for your RAM story. To make it work, you would need to addBLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">code/font><HR><pre>&lt;a name="ramrise"&gt;[/code]just before the abreviated article on your page.

    I don't care what your editor is telling you, the code doesn't lie.

    I also noticed that you were working to lower the load time required for your site. I bet if you cleaned up your code, that would shave off quite a bit of time. I used the clean up HTML command in Dreamweaver 2.0 and it removed 8 redundant tags. There are plenty more, but I'd have to actually start looking into your code to find them, and I dont' have that kinda time.

    I'm also willing to be that you could get the same effect, as far as layout goes, without sacrificing load time, if you cut your use of tables down. You've got a bunch of blank cells that you used for spacing, when if you specified alignment for the cells with content. You can also give the impression that the page loads faster if you use several smaller tables instead of the one huge table. Most browser will not display the table and it's contents until it all loads.

    Dynamike,
    How much would it cost me to have you clean the site up, and remove the excess tables?

    Chadl, I would highly recommend that you buy Allair HomeSite. It'll cost you about $100 (cheap!).

    hello chadl,

    get yourself the Evrsoft HTML Editor. Easy to use and 100% free. This way you can, if you want to, do it yourself.
