  3. In one word: lacking.

    The page is generally blank, not counting the text itself. The image
    files you're referencing do not exist on the server, and the markup is
    all messy. Judging by the markup clutter, I'm assuming you've used
    Microsoft Word to design the page. Your page ends up with 88 validation
    errors, plus quite a bit of unnecessary markup, styles and comments:

    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://www.totalkool.com/

    Using Word for web design is a bad idea (for anything but planning the
    content structure). I suggest you invest some time in using a software
    package designed for just such a purpose. A good starting point is the
    open source package NVU:

  4. Most of them are missing in IE6 as well. Some additional text shows in
    IE6, but is not "selectable".
    <p class=MsoTitle3><span style='language:EN'>Sign Up Form</span></p>
    ...cannot be selected by click-drag in my IE6.

    The "Newsletter" page asks for an email address, accepts it, and doesn't
    test to see if it is valid. Example, it accepted: joe @ nowhere.com
    with spaces.

    How about a sample of one of the newsletters?

    "Sign up for" .. something that's blank .. for a thousand dollars?

  6. Look at source and see:

    left:191px;top:233px;width:561px;height:3px'><img width=561 height=3
    src="index_files/image347.gif"
    v:shapes="_x0000_s1059"></span><![endif]><!--[if gte vml 1]><v:rect
    id="_x0000_s1524" style='position:absolute;left:6in;top:219pt;width:120pt;

    height:120pt;z-index:26;mso-wrap-distance-left:2.88pt;mso-wrap-distance-top:2.88pt;
    mso-wrap-distance-right:2.88pt;mso-wrap-distance-bottom:2.88pt'
    o:preferrelative="t" filled="f" fillcolor="white [7]" stroked="f"

    And the editor is? #1! This stuff was spewed from MS Publisher...

  7. Yep. Did that. :)
    I remember getting a copy of the then-new Publisher 97 and seeing "Makes
    web pages" on the box. Whoohoo, I said. Made one page, saw how bad it
    was, and trashed it. Later versions are worse.

  10. Well you got the quoting part down, but the reply part seems a bit lacking!

  11. He just posted the same query in alt.www.webmaster, where he says he is
    eleven years old. For some reason, the site doesn't look like something
    an 11-year-old would produce.

    I wonder if he is Geoff Hutchison ?

  12. Who is Geoff Hutchison?

    Agreed, although poor in design is does not look like the work of an
    11-year-old.

  13. The person whose name is listed as the registered owner of the domain
    name. Has an address in Shepparton, Victoria, AU. It also lists an email
    Maybe the 'hutchy.com' does...

    You are eleven? I know something about eleven year olds.

    What an eleven year old can do and does do are closely related.
    It is a wonderful thing in many ways. These two things will never
    quite be so closely matched in any subsequent age group.

  17. "When you pay a small fee of only 1k per month ..."

    $1000 AU Dollars? Euros? US Dollars? Per month?

    " ... you can ask other people on our Runescape Chat your buggering
    questions or you could post a message onto our sit which we will
    answer!"

    Is Runescape a game for kids? Will kids have a thousand dollars?

    A cursory look only here but, apparently, "yes" to both.
