What is Doctype?

Doctype is a free question and answer site for web designers. You can get fast solutions to your CSS, HTML, web design and email design problems.

For each question, Doctype can generate screenshots of your design on any browser or email client. This makes it much easier for other people to see the problem and help you fix it.

Everything is editable, just like a wiki. This means answers are accurate, neat and up-to-date. Note that you'll need a reputation score of 100 before you can edit other people's stuff.

Reputation score

Your reputation score is the heart of your account on Doctype. To earn a great reputation, just write great answers to other people's questions.

You'll get 5 points each time someone votes in favour of one of your answers. If your answer is really great and gets chosen as the best answer, you'll get 20 points.

Can I ask questions about programming or systems administration?

We'd like to keep Doctype focussed only on web design questions. We'd highly recommend Stack Overflow and Server Fault for programming or systems administration questions.

Who built Doctype?

Doctype was built by the people who run Litmus - David Smalley, Paul Farnell and Matthew Brindley.
