    This website is in its very early stages. The current website (which I did NOT design) is at http://soundsofhope.org. I've only created the homepage so far on the new site no links work yet. Valid XHTML & CSS, no tables. It still is a little buggy in IE (please help). Suggestions? Thanks.

    you took special care to do css image replacement in the headers, but then you did javascript image swaps in the navigation. DON'T DO THAT! avoid reliance on images as primary navigation items. You can use the same text replacement methods on <a> tags in CSS, just display them block level. So close yet so far. Images as navigation kills your usiblity and SEO. I like the design though. Needs a bit of tweeking, but good start.

    Thanks for the help, drewbeta.

    Actually, I didn't even make the navigation... It was made using a Dreamweaver plugin, so I suppose I should just do things manually from now on.

    I think you are looking at the old site.

    I like the colors and the layout, I'd run it through a validation test to make sure your site is more accessible. Good Luck
