<Mod edit to comply with Site Review Rule #1 (http://www.webproworld.com/viewtopic.php?t=47) - Syren>

If you're going to use a fixed width table it is good practice to use align="center" so that on larger resolutions it does not leave a large space at the side. Also you have fixed it at 800 which will make it have horizontal scroll on Internet explorer on 800x600 screens.

Thank you for the tip carbonize.

Okay, is it a site review that you seek or just comments on the picture of the fair?
Well, just to kick off the commentary about the site, I'd make sure that, if you've got a "Top of Page" link at the bottom of a page, or anywhere on the page for that matter, there was an named anchor at the top of the page so that code such as /img/top.gifTop of Page (#top) actually worked. In this case <a name="top" id="top"></a> and place it in the appropriate <td>. The modifications that I made to the code were done to assure compliance with XHTML standards.
I found it a curious that a community, family oriented site would use the word "cannabis" in it's keyword meta tag. Allow me to quote just a little bit of it.
... love, relationship, cannabis, children, church, cinema, clubs, community ...and that was on your kids directory index page.
I think I'll write to good old Colin Inglis, the head of your city counsil, to see if he's aware of all that pot cultivation that's goin' on there in Hull. If that's you, Mo Serruya, that's posting on this forum, I'll be sure to drop your name. You know -- give credit where credit is due.

Thanks tikanet for your feedback.
I'll check my use of the top of page code.
The meta tags are actually all the same, my fault as they are just a jsp include with probably as you say some irrelevant keywords.
As for cannabis well here's what the readers sent in.
Your rude assumptions about me or Colin Inglis for that matter are none of your business.

Oh, light it up --- er, I mean, lighten up. The point is clear: attention needs to be paid to keywords in context when SEOing. Syntax, my good man, syntax. You clearly got the point, but didn't appreciate the delivery method. I apologize for offending you.

I know I'm stressed with all this work, 4 kids and no doe for it, so apology accepted and I know your right. Syntax is everything. Anyway I republished all 250 pages with your fix, so thank you.
By the way, San Diego is where I leared to surf the sea and tase a little of Zen, so thank em for me.

I love the idea for the site, every city in the UK should have one, it would boost our tourist industry, which i believe should be a lot bigger considering all the history, culture etc. there is here. The site design is also quite good, especially considering you were not paid, or did i misunderstand? The page is, however, very long, you should cut it down, and put the excess on seperate pages.
Hope this helps!

Yes I'll cut the page down in size, appreciate you telling me as no one else did. Yes it's unpaid, and yes its an effort, but it's the people who write the stories, articles, poetry, diaries of real peoples lives, who deserve the credit. I do the web stuff (Mo) and my partner Cilla (who has all the friends) collects their work and basically makes it all happen. So yes, without her this wouldn't have happened. And what's more ludicrous still is that we met online, and in real life only 6 months ago.
Life sure is strange.
