All of this was not to discourage you, just to state that adventures are very much alive on the web. Perhaps you should have searched for "Adventure Games", instead. Most adventure games are Point-N-Click. Of course there are many that are not, but even ScummVM, whose goal is to support Point-N-Click adventures, supports a large number of non Point-N-Clicks, as well.

I said validate. I.e. you did not write valid HTML, only something that looks a bit like it. Your browser might display it correctly, but that's just pure change. There's no guarantee how other browsers will display it.

It's kinda like when you constantly write "your" instead of "you're". People might understand you, but they could also misunderstand you horribly.

Or, like a nice quote on bash.org say, like the difference between "I helped my uncle Jack off the horse." and "i helped my uncle jack off the horse.". :P

It's not valid. In order to validate it you need to run every web file on your website through a site like this to check to make sure the code is valid. Fix any problems the validator has with your website and then check it again. When there are no problems your website is HTML validated properly.

<st1:place w:st="on"> and <o:p>&nbsp;</o:p> make me think that this was coded using *ugh* MS Word

Edit: Oh, and pointing to a css on your computer doesn't work so well for everyone else :)

Not on all browsers, though. Writing valid HTML is the only real guarantee that other users can actually read what you've put together.

The validator is by the W3C, the guys who created the HTML standard in the first place. If their validator says what you've done is not valid HTML, it isn't valid HTML.

Then you've either used the template wrong or the template itself is broken. Or both.

Moreover, while you do have alt-attributes to your images, they're always empty. Not good. They're there to serve as a describtion should the image not be available for some reason. And for visually impaired people, who are dependant on screen readers and braille lines.

And yes, I'm aware that I'm being pedantic here, but these things are important. And you did ask for reviews, after all.
