Website sparks

This website was designed and developed by me.

It uses HTML 4.01 Strict for markup and CSS 3 techniques for presentational elements.

Eye-candy tricks are provided by the open-source jQuery Javascript library and a couple of plugins (Background-Position, ColorBox, jQuery Easing & Preload Css Images).

This website won't be half as fun on Internet Explorer as it would be on any decent browser, e.g., Firefox, Google Chrome & Safari. Actually, it says goodbye to IE6.


Hat tip to Leo Xavier and Luís Abreu for the Javascript and jQuery expertness!

Duplos has been selected as Site of the Month by The CSS Awards!
