I like it. One thing I would change is to make the outside links, such as those in the Web Design Tutorials, open a new window. That way they will not take people away from your site. When the text is enlarged it starts overlapping things. Other than that, I like it a lot.

you've spelled design "deisgn" on the main page title bar
other than that all looks well

There is much that is admirable about the appearance
of the PixelWeb start page. It is very "neat" meaning "tidy,
clean, pleasant, balanced, light, focused, consistent."
It looks quietly professional without gimmicks, ads, or large
graphics. The visitor can see right off what is offered and
can navigate easily.
I expect some viewers might find it a little bland and would
prefer a bit more color or some feature that reaches out to
grab us and draw us in. But I do not think that is essential
for a site whose main purpose is to provide information.
The content of the site is rather mixed: first, there is a
rather superficial essay about web design basics. This might
not be very helpful to a total newbie who does not know
web terminology. Links added inside these paragraphs defining
terms and directing the reader to actual HTML editors, etc.,
would make it more meaty. Cross references to your "Web
Design Tutorials" page would be useful. I would link to more
HTML tutorials because this is such a basic thing which
uninitiated readers need.
Some of your tutorials go pretty much beyond what a
beginner can handle; for example, "popup menus" are not
a basic. I am going to try the ones you suggest to see
whether they work better than ones I have seen in the
past. They are beautifully organized and easy to follow.
I did have a little trouble finding the download of the JS
fix for IE hover.
The advanced Photoshop tutorials are fine for those who
have access to Photoshop and know how to use it.
About the coding. I have never seen anything quite like this.
You have avoided the use of tables, and everything seems
to line up to perfection. But the source code lacks a DTD.
I see it is possible to lay out a page using nothing but DIVS
calling for absolute positioning. But there seem to be far
too many <FONT></FONT> tags. Could you create an external
style sheet that would cut down on your typing and make
the code page cleaner?

But without success. I downloaded the .htc file to make
IE "behave" (as the tutorial suggested) and make hover
work on elements besides just the anchors. Windows XP
refused to open the .htc file.
Anyway, it was fun trying!

Looks clean, nice information...I can't complain...You can add glitz if you want, but that is just my opinion b/c I like graphics...
The simple look is effective and you deliever your message in concise neat table spoons...good job...

I think it's sleek and well desgined. Logo is nice too. For the content that is there, it seems well presented.

You have added a little color which does make
the page more interesting. And I like your new
features as well.
Would it be possible to put the Google Ads
below the Web Design Basics paragraphs.
I know About.com and others put ads into
the message, but I find it very distracting.
In fact, in a few cases I have thought that
the start of the ads was the end of the content.
