    It doesn't look too hot, in terms of the text, in Firefox (big surprise, if it was designed with a Microsoft tool, lol!)... I'd recommend defining your text sizes in pixels rather than as numbers...

    ie.
    font-size:12 px;

    rather than...
    font-size:2;

    Got to go out, so not a lot of time to make many other comments - only thing I would say is that there's a tremendous amount of code in that page, so it's got the potential to take a while to load. If I were to look at the design and try to guess what code lies behind it I would expect about 10% of what is actually there. This is one danger of using a WYWSIWYG such as Frontpage. You may wish to consider coding by hand - it is not actually as difficult as you might think :-)

    Back later,

    Sean

    The code is an absolute mess! (excuse the pun )

    If a person doesnt know HTML, they cannot hand-code anything, so there best bet would be to use Dreamweaver.

    Paul, I suggest you start over, maybe learn alittle HTML and CSS, so you can design a simple site. Once you have something that we can work with(code-wise) then we can help you out!

    Of course coding everything by hand is the cleanest, but if he is using frontpage, I doubt he knows enough html to code by hand. And if you are using a wysiwyg, might as well use dreamweaver.

    Sorry - that was a mischevious comment ;-)

    Problem with Dreamweaver is the price... HTML in its basic form is a very simple technology to learn, if you work through it methodically... I'm a great advocate of handcoding and have taken folks who are total technophobes and in a few hours had them coding HTML, and then a few days later embracing CSS (good idea to give them a while to get to terms with HTML first! :-))

    I think I might have some time tonight, Paul, to take a look at your site... might play with it a bit and then upload what I come up with, and you can see what you think...

    ...no obligation to take any notice of anything I change, but you might get some ideas from it...

    But, for now, I have to disappear as there's some work I need to do... talk later...

    Also, change the title! "index" is very unoriginal.
