My wife and I recently moved to Nagoya, Japan and we decided to write a blog to chronicle our experiences. I threw one together using Joomla! and, though I'm a developer and know better than to attempt any real design, I'm not entirely without a sense of style.

In the age of ‘always on’ connections, having a web presence is more important than ever. In response, there are a proliferation of web page design programs that promise good web pages with little or no web programming experience. Joomla does not necessarily play in this space, but how feasible is it to construct web sites using Joomla with little or no programming experience?

Being young and eager, I'd always jump straight into a design with very little thought, preparation, or even communication with a client! I would spend hours and hours at my desk coming up with what I thought was the "perfect design" for the client only to get it completely rejected with comments such as, "I was thinking of something a little different", or "That's not quite what I had in mind", or even worse "Are you really a designer?"

Yesterday I broke one of my rules when it comes to template development - I started to cross browser test before I validated.
I had my design looking perfect in Safari and Firefox and, without thinking, thought I would see what it looked like in Internet Explorer.
