    Very nice! Clean design, the white bg for the text makes it stand out from the whole site.

    Only crique I have is the mouseovers: on the left hand side, they are gray and make the links harder to see. On the menu items on the top, there are no mouseovers, and they would look nice there.

    Also, the image on top is interesting, what's it supposed to be?

    Right. Mouseovers are supposed to make links clearer and stand out more, not hide them.

    Nice work. Overall design is consistent, clean, and graphically unique. Thumbs up.

    Gotta agree with the rest. Very crisp, professional, but the mouseovers need tweaking.

    I like it. It's very clean. My only complaint (and a minor one) is that when the page is loading, the background for the text section remains the dark stripes so you get dark on dark, which is hard to read. It's not a problem once it's loaded but until then, it's a bugger.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    Game,

    The background shows like that because he's using databased content in nested HTML tables. So what happens is that the server-side script connects to the database and retrieves a recordset, then generates the HTML, which waits until the page generating done (because of the nested tables) to begin rendering any of the elements.

    A good work-around for this is to use what I call "Stacked Tables" when you're using data-driven content. That way, each table (or div, if you're using stacked divs) will render once it's completely generated, not waiting for the rest.

    You can make "Stacked Tables" by splitting up your content into 2 or more top-level tables (direct children of the body element). Typically you will see them as a "banner [+ top nav]" / "[side nav +] content" split.

    In the case of your site, Exodus, if you replace your outside table with <center></center> tags, it should fix your problem.
