    Yours had a typo, I think

    I like the story about the man who can read goth minds, lol.

    Design is a funny thing. Probably your best bet is to take a close look at sites your really like. Study their code to see how they did things. Then start again, not copying their code but taking the lessons you have learnt and applying them to something you like but is all your own.

    That way you will end up with what [b]you[/b] feel is a 'good' webpage and it will be all your own work.

    Ed:

    Its looking like your site may be down - I got nothing even close to a satire. It forced me to megago.com where I got several pop up windows when I tried to exit the site.

    Check out my post above with the corrected url. It was a typo.

    I am suddenly feeling like a moron - I just got Dean's comment on the typo. I still got two pop-ups, which I personally find very annoying. Also, somebody said the same thing to me on another site I did - but the blue links seem to be difficult to read when you go from the gray background to the white.

    What about the possibility of just a few words - say no longer than the "Kylie Minogue convicted of stalking long-term obsession" - kind of doing a layout similar but different :-) to what they have on cnn.com, etc.
