    Hey that’s great, my girlfriend is Chinese and she is usually reluctant to teach me very long. HA! now I’ve got a tool.

    I noticed that the Chinese site looks nice and clean like yours. Is that one CSS too?

    If I was getting ready to work on some old html site but wanted to move it up into xhtml or better, css, do I need to review the html first or just begin learning how to convert it?

    By the way, should I never list an email on a webpage? When is it safe?
