Not even a basic one, to the best of my knowledge - hence why I'm doing my own site.

This excellent Danish site covers Holmegaard and Kastrup, amongst others - and it's not too challenging to follow:

Just a bit of consumer research...

I'm putting together the actual content of the site, and I'd like some opinions on the lay-out of the information, if possible. Because the site's bilingual it can get a little clumsy or over-crowded.... but does this scan okay for everyone? Also, is the font-size okay? I've got a big monitor, so I find it hard to tell what's too big and too small for other folk.

I thought I'd best ask before replicating it throughout the rest of the site!  ;D

Thanks in advance.

Hi Nic, I had to increase the font size to be able to read it, which then made it rather compressed looking, and lost the nice "white-space" feel of it.... :-\

I have a standard 17" flat screen in 1024 x 768

Me too. You have to think of us elderly folk.  ;D One small proofreading point, 1950s, etc. shouldn't have an apostrophe. (Yeh I know trigger-happy red pen - ask David!)

I'll have a tweak at the font size and see what I can do! It's hard to balance ease-of-use with aesthetics when there's so much information to cram in, especially when it has to be crammed in twice...

I noticed the rogue apostrophes after I'd done all of the title headers. I really should pay attention to what I'm doing when I'm doing it...  ;D

Although it is an acceptable form in the English language - according to the OED - just not preferable. I'll eventually get around to changing them.

Hopefully big enough to read without sacrificing too much white-space?

I accidentally posted a link to the original page, have corrected it to the new version. It will hopefully be a visible change if you check now.
