    It's a nice looking site - just a couple of comments:

    I'd like to see more detailed contact info, I have no idea where the 941 area code is and I had to search for the Sarasota location.

    Also, I always recommend separate stylesheets - if Dreamweaver doesn't want to let you edit that part of the page, do it in some other editor, like Notepad++ so you can circumvent the non-editable parts of the Dreamweaver template.

    And for better SEO, take a look at your content text and try to put your keywords into <h1> or at the least <h2> tags. If you don't want them to look different from the rest of the text on the page, fine - just style the <h1> and <h2> tags the same as the main font - this way the search engines will find your keywords for indexing and the text will keep the same look.

    If you keep your stylesheets separate, it does a couple of things:

    It allows you to keep formatting elements separate from functional elements.

    For example, the <h1> tags are designed to be used for headers, and are very important for SEO. However, many web designers don't want to use the default font and size, and as a result make headers appear within <font></font> tags instead of using the header tags. As a result, the document gets crowded with formatting code, you lose any SEO advantage, and any change made in one header has to be made to all headers across the whole site! With an external stylesheet, your html pages will be cleaner and you'll be using the right tags for the function (eg, a <h1> for a header, etc) instead of filling up your document with all sorts of formatting code.

    At the same time, it allows you to easily keep the same formatting across the whole site. If you want all your text in regular paragraphs to be dark grey instead of black, you just change the stylesheet and the change is in place across the site. Now you won't have to go through every single file on your website to make the changes, and possibly accidentally forget one!

    You can use different stylesheets for different browsers. IE is famous for needing hacks and workarounds to get things to display correctly. You can create a stylesheet just for that, and solve a lot of problems.

    Background is waaaaaay too dark

    Go for a much lighter and more subtle BG color in the main body (e.g. light gray)

    With a lighter color scheme and some formatting with the wall of text on the homepage would improve this site.

    It looks like it was made on the book "simple html" or smth like that. Maybe it is ok for the first site. But you have much to work on.
