General info about The-Manors
Thanks to the Web site design team for translating our requirements into reality.
Site design was carried out by myself, Ian, & Basil the Rat. (Basil is the small brown furry creature on top of the monitor).
The site has been extensively tested to ensure correct rendering using Firefox, my browser of choice, IE6 and Opera. If you have any problems viewing pages at The-Manors, please feel free to report the faults using The-Manors Feedback form. Ahh, if only more web sites tried to be as accommodating!.
I've deliberately avoided using authoring programmes, as I wanted to try to extend my programming skills. Also, Basil complained about the complexity of using Frontpage, Dreamweaver etc., on the basis that it's difficult to remember how to use complicated software when you're only a small stuffed toy. He also didn't like the continuous references to "using" a mouse.
For anyone that's particularly interested, the excellent menu system was borrowed from a site I found on the web. The code is freely available, and did exactly what I wanted. (See link below). The many pages are maintained using Server Side Includes.
As each page has been developed, it has been checked for compliance with the latest HTML and CSS standards. Where appropriate, the relevant validation icons have been added to each individual page as shown below. When these icons are clicked on, they link to an on-line validator at the World Wide Web Consortium W3C site. Validation of the individual pages can be seen interactively.
