About us

Quality hand-coded XHTML/CSS is delivered to you by a team of coders with 5 years+ experience in the web development field. To date, we have served over 2400 clients worldwide.

During this time, we came to realize the power of semantic, clean XHTML, the publishing language of the web. While the process of creating successful website involves various, and sometimes complicated steps, XHTML is the main root of the web no matter how many web technologies arise. Most importantly, clean standardized XHTML is the key to accessibility and long lasting web pages for the future.

On July 23rd, 2008, we made the decision to transform our business in the web field to provide quality, hand-coded, clean XHTML/CSS. At the time, there were many competitors in the industry, and since then their numbers' have only increased, but this benefits the web by making it a better, cleaner place.

  • Standardize your website by the use of hand-coded Strict XHTML doctype
  • We convert your PSD to XHTML by taking your design, hand-coding it to flexible XHTML/CSS. We can also work with .ai, .jpg, and .png.



PSD to XHTML Service - How it Works

Step 1 - Make an order

When ordering PSD to XHTML service, you'll be asked to specify layout options for your design, such as layout type, horizontal and vertical alignment, and the number of inner pages (i.e. pages within the same website other than the home page) if required. If you have for example a home page and 5 inner pages of similar styles, we recommend you order 1 inner page as we often create a base template for inner pages which makes it easier for you to create as much inner pages as you need with little effort. You compress the design files components and upload it when you order, if you need to improve quality and standardize existing pages, you can just specify the URL of your pages. Lastly, you set a password to access our clients' area which will update you (see next step) regarding your project. Once you pay offsite, you will be redirected back to our site for order confirmation.

Step 2 - Communication and updates

Once the order is received, we usually get back to you in less than 2 hours, for which the order will be in "Initialized" status. We update the order status as soon as possible to "Confirmed", then to "Development Process". Each order has an associated support ticket which makes it easier to communicate regarding a specific order if we think there is an element in the design that needs clarification, or if new project guidelines arise.

Step 3 - Delivery

Once the development process is complete and your codes ready, we will send you an e-mail to notify you of completion with an attachment of the compressed files, and you may also download it from your clients area. We keep backup of your resulting files, but you have the ability to automatically and entirely remove them from our server. You can always request a revision during a free 15 days of technical support upon delivery.

A page stating that there is currently work overload and gives me different turnaround time, thought you say 24 hours?

We convert each design / existing markup you provide us in 24 hours. However, in some cases there is work overload and we will not be able to start working on your project right away, therefore we have created a waiting list system and thought we'd alert you of our schedule before you proceed with payment.

What can I upload?

Whatever you like! Basically the design and fonts if needed. Only .zip or .rar file types allowed.

What kind of project guidelines do you need?

If the design is flattened we will need all font names of the design, some basic stuff like color of links when hovered, the navigation link when hovered. As a rule of thumb, if there is anything you think will be unobvious, please let us know about it to avoid having revisions and finish the project in time.

What's the difference between fixed, fluid, and elastic layout types?

A fixed layout type has a fixed width defined in pixels, it's of the same width regardless of screen resolution.

A fluid layout has its elements widths defined in percentages, allowing the layout to resize to fit screen resolution.

An elastic layout uses the em unit of measurement, which is relative the font-size. An elastic layout resizes when font-size is increased or decreased by the user.

How are you going to send me the results?

Once your project is finished, we will send you an e-mail with the attachment of the results and you will also be able to download it in our clients' area, by clicking the "Download codes" link in the corresponding table of your order ID.

What if I have more than 30 designs/pages in need of coding?

We'll offer you a discount and an altered turnaround time.

Why is the cancel order link deactivated?

You may only cancel an order when the project is in the Initialized status. If the Initialized stage is passed, then your project is confirmed and is scheduled and thus will affect turnaround time of future orders of other clients, therefore cannot be canceled.

Why is the modify order details link deactivated?

You can only modify order details when the project is in Initialized status, because mostly we'd have begun the development process even if the project is in Clarifications Required status. If there is something critical, you may let us know about it in the support ticket associated with your order.

Why is the upload more files link deactivated?

In most cases you can upload more files, except if the project is finished or canceled.

Why is the request revision link deactivated?

The request revision link is deactivated if the project is not yet finished or canceled, or if 15 days had passed since the order was finished.

How can I provide a testimonial?

You can provide a testimonial once the project is finished by clicking Provide link in the testimonial column of your corresponding order ID table.

How can I delete the results from your servers?

You can delete all your results of all previous projects by logging in > My Account > Delete Projects Codes.

What do you mean by Semantic Markup?

Semantic markup is the use of appropriate tags to declare page elements; it's about using the correct HTML elements to give content meaning. Semantic markup is considered good practice as it helps boost your search engine results and increases the ability for modern devices to read your pages correctly which makes your pages accessible.

What do you mean by Accessibility?

Web accessibility is about following web standards to make your pages accessible by all people of abilities and disabilities. The use of semantically meaningful HTML is the defining point to make your pages of equal access to all people.

What do you mean by Separation of Content and Presentation?

Separation of content and presentation is the practice of separating the HTML and CSS files, with HTML specializing in describing the meaning of the content and CSS decorating that content.

Do we own the code?

The resulting codes are 100% yours.

Do you keep our designs?

The files you've uploaded are automatically deleted after 15 days had passed since the project was finished, or when the project is canceled.

Will anyone know the fact that we have used your services?
