    Sweet mother of God, I was voluntereed to rewrite this site, without changing it much, i did a view source and almost went directly into a seizure.

    http://www.chapelwoodumc.org/BoyScouts/

    I haven't changed much on the server one yet, so you can see what I have to deal with. I've been just cleaning the code so far, but I've gotten down to the animated GIF with the badges and the index file is already almost half of the original size. And thank god i downloaded Editplus+, I was still using Notepad.

    That's something I already now for years.:)

    The first versions of frontpage were crappy as well.:squint: However the last thing I heard about frontpage is, that it's getting better but not even close to the likes of dreamweaver.

    If I were you, I'd try doing something with the design as well. You never know If they'll like it and reward you for it.:naughty:

    In the meanwhile :bigthumb: GOOD LUCK :bigthumb: with deciphering the Word mess.

    My using technology teacher told us never to use code, because they have better things like *Word* to do it for us.

    I almost killed her.

    WOW, good luck with that

    Notepad > *

    We got told in school that we "COULD" use Word, but i dont think any self-respecting web designer would......i hope.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: Thats the biggest POS coding i've ever seen

    If you're redoing the site, stop editing that shit and just fix it...it looks terrible anyway

    and USE DREAMWEAVER! It actually writes clean code, and has a word HTML cleanup feature, plus you could redo that site in about 3 minutes

    Heres what it looks like after being automatically cleaned up in dreamweaver
