    I made a post earlier, and since then I have taken some of the suggestions and made a completely new layout. I removed the tables, and removed the flash buttons and made them Javascript instead. I also used CSS. I realize it still has lots of work, but any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Also, I realize that the "home" button does not work as of now, that will be fixed when I set up my new host.

    That is a major improvement! Well done.

    A few things tho (isn't there always )

    - That banner took a really long time to load and just realized that it's a BMP ... you should only be using JPG, GIF or PNG for images on the internet. It will reduce the size of that big hunkin' image

    - Remove the border from the images in the menu and change those to JPG, GIF or PNG as well

    It's not bad ... you're still using tables and deprecated tags but you're getting there.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I am confused about a few things. What should I use instead of tables so that I can get the text and picture aligned how they are now?

    Also, I do not exactly understand what depreciated tags are, can someone elaborate on that please?

    <font face>, <font size> are the deprecated tags she is talking about. You can set all of the font info in your style sheet.

    I agree that it is a vast imporvement over the last site you showed us.

    Divs ... like you started with. Something like:

    CSS
    Code:
    #content {
      float: left;
      width: 300px;
    }
    
    #image {
      float: right;
      width: 250px;
    }
    HTML
    HTML Code:
    <div id="content">bla bla bl</div>
    <div id="image"><img src="...."></div>
    Those 2 divs should be side by side.

    Like Chris said, <font> and <center> are deprecated elements. See the list of deprecated elements and attributes (there'll be a "D" in one of the columns to show they are deprecated)
