describing the evolution of my
Belgian layout, is now available in English too.
I think non-Belgian folks might enjoy my site as well, as it describes a lot
of hints on subjects I've been reading in this newsgroup.
As for the translation, I think there are still a lot of linguistic mistakes
on the pages.
Would you be so kind to report them to me?

I couldn't get the links at the top of the page to work and just assumed the
site was still under construction.
Yes, indeed. Sorry about the detour! The menu hierarchy is a somewhat
unintuitive (as Kim evidently found) and it takes some time to get the hang
of it. A particular gripe is that clicking the 'Home' button does not
necessarily return you to the home page. The 'Reactions' menu might be
better titled 'Feedback' - a personal preference.
Your English is generally very good and deviations from standard terminology
are fairly minor.
"At the clock-entrance a triangular signal...",
would be expected as -
"At the clock-input a triangular signal..."
But as the English will argue at length about the terminology they use
amongst themselves I suggest you don't get too preoccupied with minor
Content (once found) will certainly be of interest to others. I'm sure that
click-able images linking to larger shots would be appreciated, you seem to
have a major civil engineering project under way there. For the website,
the menu design is the issue that needs first attention, when you get time
off from the heavy engineering!
Thank you for the more in-depth evaluation of the site.
The home-page problem shouldn't be too hard to fix, I will do this in a
The "entrance"-thing is something I obviously missed during proof-reading.
I was wondering about a better word than "Reactions" -thanks for the tip!
As for the menu itself, I'm using my third design now. Because the website
evolves continuously - as does my layout - I needed to enlarge the menu as
well. The second menu design I used was more straightforward, but only
compatible to MSIE, so this left a lot of internet users out.
I've spend a lot of time designing this menu, but I know too little about
hand-made, using pictures with links. I wanted it to load fast and be fairly
easy to use.
Thanks again for your effort,
