    i dont like white on text on black background - its an immediate off-putter for me
    also i think you need to try for soem uniformity in text
    from left to right i can see three different types and 4 different colours
    also the right hand column looks unfinished
    i think you can improve on the underlined links

    Before I begin any critique, I'll get it out of my system that I actually despise Frontpage and frames.

    Firstly your colour scheme, quite literally, burns into my retinas - cyan on black is a combination that will never work effectively, if you are going to go for black you really have to choose your colours carefully. Try using more sombre colours to soften the contrast. Also the 'ROUGH CUT REVIEWS' logo background doesn't match the background colour on a TFT screen.

    The design is also really...well, boring. There's little to sustain my interest to actually go and read the content with a design that looks just like a Frontpage template (sorry, I couldn't help it). My advice would be to go and learn XHTML and CSS along with some colour theory, and you could then end up with a decent design.

    Hi, overall the design is quite good but it looks a bit clutered. I wouldn't recommend using frames this article will explain why,

    http://webdevelopment.developersnetw...sp?Article=120

    This month's feature would look much better if you had a black background with white text. i like the movie style bars on the left and right but maybe consider making them the same size, it would improve it a lot i think. The overall content is very good and accurate.

    In firefox the left bar is futher down than in IE, unsure why though but it doesn't look very professional. I like the logo and the top bar, is definitely the best bit.

    I'm not criticising i'm just trying to help so please don't take this the wrong way.

    Thanks for the honsety, I'll give your advice a go, just trying to learning about CSS just now, have had some may different colours for the link colours, though cyan stood out well but I'll try something else and I agree with you on the frontpage element, prefer Dreamweaver but my web host I sued look favourably on Frontpage. Frames was becasue I time consuMption, din't want to have to copy the links in to each and every page but hopefully when I learn CSS this will change!! Thanks again for your honesty!

I have been long considering getting rid of the frames but due to your feedback will def do this sooner!! Liked you ideas about making both colums same size as well and am grEatful for your feedback was wandering what you thought about the colours of the page and the links??

    Thanks in Advance!

    Hi glad i helped i would recommend using Div's and styling them with CSS (cascading style sheets) instead of Frames, i'm guessing your not familiar with CSS but basically it gives you greater control over all aspects including positioning. Read more here:

    http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_intro.asp

    If you would like i could make a template for you using css, wouldn't take long and would be no trouble.

    I think the black and white work well especially because of the movie theme but i don't think cyan on black works particularly well, maybe experiment with different colours to find one more suitable, also i would change the visited link colour as with purple it is hardly visible.
