Yo!

I'm doing a website for me again after long time. I need site design and functionality check!

this one is the static page:

http://users.skynet.be/fa001478/

this one uses XSLT transform at client side (on your browser):

http://users.skynet.be/fa001478/index2.html

For the XSLT transform you need IE5+ with MSXML3 installed. In IE6 it is already included.

So how does my site look? Thx :D

The page design looks good to me. Not too contrasty and not too busy. The blank space under the girl could use something. Might be a good place for link banners. Although, it might not be noticable with a full page of text and stuff.

My only question is why are you using XML DOM in JS instead of just making the XSLT template parse the XML directly? It would be more straight forward, less work, slightly faster, and it would eventually work in other webrowsers (like mozilla and opera when they add full XSLT) if you did it the standard XSLT way. It's almost done to w3 XSLT specs if you visit your http://users.skynet.be/fa001478/index.xml page. It will just require a little cleanup in the style sheet to match your design.

Other than that, keep up the good work!!

I'm using a .JS because not all people will have MSXML3 installed. XSLT doesn't work on MSXML 2.x. It tries to catch the exception which will be thrown when creating MSXML2.DOMDocument.3.0 if it's not installed. You get onto a static error page then. That's the use of it. If I could be sure that everyone got MSXML3 I'd do it like you said. Also only few people run MSXML3 in replacement mode which would be required to get it work correctly w/o .JS :/

IE6 has MSXML3 as default, but not all run IE6, and don't talk about Netscrap :D
