Love your website. It's well organized, complex on the inside and simple and beatifully designed on the outside - so easy to follow. That's an art. I really appreciate what you done with this site.

Thanks,
Jay

I come across your web through search engine.
That's definitely a wonderful website. However I've took notice the Chinese calligraphy doesn't match your domain name "the art of web". The three Chinese characters mean "a website about art". The correct one should be "網的藝術"(Im afraid those characters cannot be displayed correctly on your machine.)

Just happened upon your site this evening and find it a real joy to use. Clean, correct, helpful, and lovely to look at. Thanks for providing such a thoughtfully designed service. I will recommend it to the rest of my team.

Thanks! If I only had more time to keep it updated...

The Chinese character there is correct. Very often when translated from chinese character to English the words or sentence structure is inverted.

Good to know. Thanks

Great site. It looks like there is a lot of useful and interesting information here. I'd sure like an RSS feed to follow that told me when you posted some new information

Thanks for the feedback. I've added an RSS feed now that will includes links to new articles as they are released.

Very beautiful Chinese calligraphy you chose. Love it.

However, it does not match the English title. To translate the Chinese writing, it means "The Web of Art". To correct it, the third character needs to be at the top and add another character in between.

Thanks Becky. A friend of a friend in China wrote the characters for me herself so it's not something I can easily change. Actually I'm happy to hear that it's so close in any case, and maybe there are different ways it can be interpreted
