I like the new design but there are 2 problems:
the HTML code sucks (no valid XHTML code or whatever standard), the pages look faulty at many places (e.g. musework & contacts look wrongly broken to a second line of navigation links) but worst:
you had a wonderful description of the cast, of all important persons.
Where has it gone?
Not everyone is a long-time reader of sinfest and the description were funny and so on spot for each of your fancy crew.
Will it return?
Anyone else missing it, please answer here so that Tatsuya sees we are serious.

I had posted the same thing elsewhere, but I'm glad you made it into a thread. And here's hoping that lil' evil rates a full cast spot!

The site was created with Frontpage, so you cannot expect anything that halfway resembles sane HTML. I guess Tatsuya doesn't have the time to rebuild the site with another program, but Frontpage probably really was the worst choice possible. Anyway, as long as the cartoons are good and my browser is able to show em I'm fine. Smile

BTW, I think it's really worth the time to get some HTML/CSS knowledge and then write the code by hand. You'll get very clean code that does exactly what you want, mostly is quite fast (when you make use of CSS instead of the dreary <table>s) and once you're used to it you get what you want faster than with a wysiwyg-editor.

Meh - yes and no. There are a lot of things that utilities like Dreamweaver do that aren't any better than hand coding, but certainly faster.

For example: I could hand code a javascript rollover menu, but Dreamweaver does it more or less the same way I would, and does it in half the time.

That right there is a beautiful line.
