    You need to optimize the page content but other than that it looks ok.

    I'd smush things higher up on the page. add a rollover to the buttons. Make all the images a high quality (if you can't without sacraficing speed change the images design to make a smaller filesize). Use a different font for the welcome thing, since it looks too pixely.

    Advice/Suggestions

    • White or Yellow would make a more appealing and legible colour for the page footer links. Rollovers aren't just eye-candy, they help identify more clearly which link is active under the cursor.
    • Centred text is harder to read than text that is aligned to the left. The common starting point of each line associated with left aligned text for example is easier to locate than the erratic placement produced by centring.
    • Is it essential to include the word 'core' on both the 'services' and 'sectors' navigation links? Having the text display on a single line would be preferable as it looks more professional and doesn't break the flow.
    • Text displayed as images creates unnecessary load/wait times for your site users and eats into your own bandwidth at the same time. It doesn't render as nice on screen, is less readable and cannot be scaled in size. It would be wise to display written content throught text/html. (There are actual accesability laws in place for businesses offering services.)
    • Keep the font size of the content in the grey boxes consistent from page to page. One, It's more professional and two people won't have to adjust to the varying sizes.



    The more you make people work to read or find something, the less time they will spend on your site. Those points pretty much cover the main issues that would concern me.

    trico, thanks for the advice, but it is essential to use the word core and i have to use images, however, what are the actual accesability laws in place for businesses offering a service? What resolution are you running in trico because on by screen, everything renders nice. my res is 1024x768

    I'm using 1600x1200, my perception of nice may just be different to yours. It's not a major problem, but would still help.

    Have you thought about how people are going to find the site?
    All the meaningful content is locked away in images, search engine crawlers won't find anything and the site may never appear in a useful position on a search results page.

    From a quick check you appear on page2 of Yahoo, yet you're not to be seen on Google, or MSN. This was using 'cassini group uk' and that's only really useful if people already know you exist.

    If you're being forced to use images, what's the reasoning behind it?

    so basically, it dosnt matter about the keywords, but it matters about whether you use html to get the listing to be number 1?? iv already added html links at the bottom of the page if people cant see the images at the top
