Critque and help with a broken link??

    For the life of me, I cannot figure out why the link to "wedding cakes"
    isn't working?? Maybe I'm exhausted, but if anyone is willing to take a
    look at this web site and let me know, I'll be so greatful!!

    Also, any and all critques would be very helpful. I'm 100% novice
    here, so I'll take what I can get.

    By the way, the pictures are just thrown in there until I can get
    copies of the real thing...so ignore for now, I just needed to know
    what it would look like.


    Thanks so much,
    -Sally

    HA ha ha, it just dawned on me that you might need a link to check it
    out :)

    cc.usu.edu/~cassia/index.html


    thanks!

    You wouldn't believe how many people don't post that...

    Your link appears to be valid and to point to here
    http://cc.usu.edu/~cassia/cakes.html

    This returns a 404 error, suggesting there simply isn't a page at that
    location. Check spelling and case-sensitivity. Then see if you can load
    that page at all (i.e. without using a link to it, just type the page
    URL into the browser's address bar).

    I'm unimpressed by the HTML to be honest. It's years out of date in
    coding style and it's making you work too hard to get what you want.
    Read a decent newish book (try Head First HTML & CSS) and see what
    you've been missing.

    Your pages look really nice. I like this simple look and feel in them.

    However, when adding images, you should scale them in final size in
    photoshop, or whatever software you are using instead. Don't scale them
    by using 'height' and 'width' attributes in <img> -tag. If you use
    properly sized images, user does not have to download so large file to
    see a small picture.

    The link works for me.. I quite like the nice simple layout, even
    though the code is older.

    You should always put a doctype in your pages - I suggest you make it
    HTML strict as there are only nine errors to correct:

    also, it is a really good idea to follow the other guy's advice about
    scaling down your picture sizes, as they will load reeaallly slow for
    the people on dialup.

    It's awesome? How does it compare with, say, the Taj Mahal, the
    Sydney Opera House, 9/11?
