    I'm designing a financial software for my client only the design aspect, how would I present it to the developer in terms of html/css I guess so they can place the back-end coding for it to be interactive. I guess it seems like a silly question but I want to be sure. For example like how desktop applications are built , on the design aspect is html/css used?

    Everything looks great, the only thing I would change is to move the content up a little closer to the header.

    1) COMMENT THE HELL OUT OF YOUR CODE. Most developers don't want to think about where things are. If you've got 10-15 lines of code related to your menu, then you put one line of commenting indicating that it's a menu.

    Of course, good naming conventions should help a good developer...but most developers just aren't that good and aren't willing to take the time and effort. So you have to do that kind of thinking for them.

    2) Spacing where you normally wouldn't have spacing. For example:
    Code:
    <ul id="top-menu">
    <li><a href="#">Item 1</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item 2</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item 3</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item 4</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item 5</a></li>
    </ul>
    
    <!-- This is a submenu.  it's only activated when someone hovers over the main menu items above. -->
    <ul id="submenu-1">
    <li><a href="#">Item 1</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item 2</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item 3</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item 4</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item 5</a></li>
    </ul>
    The line space between the first </ul> and the comment is what i mean. It's a waste, but they'll need it. A lot of compilers will also strip out the blank space when the app is compiled anyway (e.g. certain ASP.net compilers will do this.)

    3) If you use jQuery or some other framework, see the HTML rule. You'll have to comment and space that out as well.

    4) Put an apostrophe in the slogan. "Changing people's lives..."

    You didn't ask the question, but I just noticed it. So I'm going to tell you. I'm awesome like that.

    Need some CSS help, you see the hover button I have on the software image(gold). How can I achieve that (with the point at the button) hover without using an image?

    I don't think you could with straight CSS. Might be possible with CSS3 (haven't played with it yet), but I doubt it.

    What's wrong with using an image here?

    You do...an image, an image, and an image. Pick one.

    Not a bad thought on your part, but it's just not doable any other way.
