    Firefox and IE for Win: I think the combination of the dark green bg and the blue text on the DHTML submenus is very difficult to read.

    You need some alternative navigation (perhaps at the bottom of the page, or via a sitemap link) for the content accessed via the Javascript menus... not all your visitors will have Javascript enabled, and you should not prevent them getting to your content. Dropdown menus are nice in terms of look and feel, but should not be the only way to get to a page.

    You're also using the deprecated <font> tag... if you want to do things the "right way" then you need to use CSS for defining fonts and sizes, as <font> is no longer part of the HTML specification.

    I use this neat little color schemer site all the time for choosing colors http://www.colorschemer.com/online.html Pick some that complement the colors you already have. But I think you definitely need some contrast. At least for me, the dark green and dark blue combo of the menus was difficult to read. Try a light background and dark text or vice versa.

    Well I have to use green and blue. Thats what the client requested.
    I added navigation to the bottom of the pages so that should be better.
    Green back ground on the js menu's with blue text and white highlight maybe?

    Ok see if those colors are better I think they are a little easier to read now.

    That's 100% better in terms of legibility...for me anyway. I've found that in the end though, good sense or not, the client has to like it.

    The site needs some graphics of some kind. While the text navigation is great for people with slow connections and computers, I would try and add some style to the layout as a whole. Subtle graphics tend to make a big difference.

    Could you be more specific, I didnt get much to work with, just the banner at the top and the colors, blue, green, and white. And as thier primary target audiance is people who use dial up I was kind of hesitant to use heavy graphics even if they were sliced.
