so its been a long day... but i have finished learning how to create round corners in tables -

Now i have to work on adding round corners to tables with bordered edges...
I think i'll leave that for tomorrow.

See what you think let me know your opinion - http://hexham.info/advanced-taxis - the column on the right has rounded edges - do you like them?

Very nice, I like rounded edges and it's very web 2.0. What's web 3.0 going to be?

Lee, I REALLY like the alphabet on the left hand side. How did you implement this. I think I may be able to use something like this on my site. I'm in the radio studio at the moment with a friend of mine orginally from Gosforth now in Ottawa who loves the look and feel of your site. She used to go to Hexham often.

Yeah Gosforth is only 20 miles away from Hexham, say hello from me - or 'alreet' - she'll know what you mean.

The alphabet links are just anchor links inside whats known as a static link - they have an exact postion on the screen, dosnt matter if you scroll down they stay where there meantt to be - i also added a script to the page which gives you the effect of the page scrolling when you click an anchor link.

I'll help you add it to yoru site if you like. Lee.

Thanks so much. I think I will ask you for some help with the alphabet thing. Another thing I loved were your menus on the top/bottom of the page. You will have to let me know how you manage your menus on your web site. If you want to make a menu change, how do you make sure the menus on the other pages are updated as well?
This has been a real challenge for me and the main reason I am going to try the Accordion Menu option and see how that pans out.

Smithy, its a css technique - 4 images placed in each corner of a normal box.

I am learning csss at the minute so it was a part of that for me - the best (easiest) way is to go here and use the wizard - http://cssround.com/

Enjoy - Lee.

Hey just chiming in here...
I loved your old site design, it was more mature which I think does good for the kind of site you have, this one is a bit youthful... Why did you change it?

Love the corners, I had my try with the rounded corners a while back and got tired of it and just left it alone... Lol

Thansk for you comment but i disagree - the new style template is more inviting to read the info on the page - if you see an old page version next to the new, the new looks much better.

About the rounded corners - try the link i gave smithy above - its really easy.
