About Me

First off, my name is Brandon Frohs and I am a freelance web developer. I became interested in how websites worked in 2002. I studied for nearly three years before I received my first client. Although my first client was volunteer, it helped me to expand my skills tremendously. Within two years, I received three additional clients. A year later and I am still updating and expanding two of the three previously mentioned websites. For more information, please visit my portfolio.

Why Choose Me?

  • XHTML:

    Rather than using HTML, I use XHTML 1.0 and higher. XHTML is the successor to HTML. Due to the fact that XHTML is stricter than HTML, it takes less resources to parse and ergo is the better choice for websites. To see how some big names hold up against XHTML or HTML standards, click some of the links below.

    • Google: I have nothing to say here...
    • MSN.com: If only their browser was compliant...
    • Yahoo!: And once again, a large company has errors on their website.
    • MySpace: Wow, that's a lot of errors!
    • Facebook: Well, atleast they have a DOCTYPE.
  • CSS:

    With the use of XHTML, CSS is a large factor in designing websites. XHTML is designed to organize data, not to present it to an audience. With the use of CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, a person can make a website look great without harming the organization of the document. This helps search engines index your website better and also allows text-based browsers to present your content in an organized manner.

  • Unordered Lists:

    Combining XHTML and CSS, I create menus with Unordered Lists. Not only does this make the code look 'prettier', but it also helps search engines to identify your menu easier. Unordered lists also aid text only browsers in displaying your menu correctly, rather than flowing it together with the rest of the text.
