Submitter’s comments: The homepage is probably the worst, but there’s much more sucky stuff inside.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: Normally, I don’t look at source code because it’s often a very scary place to visit. However, the source code for this home page looks fine and the CSS file has lots of comments and there doesn’t seem to be anything unusual.
What we have here is mixed text colors and sizes and an image that goes over the borders of the page (DARE—Dictionary of Regional English). You can see what I’m talking about by viewing a screen capture (1Mb).
One outstanding feature on the home page is they let you know you’re going to download a Word Document or a PDF. That’s rare.
Consistency is key here. The key is broken.
