    C'mon down and rate my site :-)

    http://www.kisstroyer.com

    Just converted it to style sheets and fixed size (used to be set percentages for height & width!)

    Style sheets still seem to be playing up, but I will work on it. I am open to all sugestions.

    Australia = cool
    Kiss = cool

    Here are my Suggestions

    1. Your site is really dark. Mayby you could lighten it up a bit.
    2. Its a slow load because your images havent been sized and optimized.
    3. Im on 800x600 which makes the site near impossible to navigate..
    4. Iframes are the Mark of Cain..

    overall your site is ok but you have alienated alot of your potential audience.

    Appreciate your thoughts (everyone else keep them coming!)

    As for the colours what do you think I should do? The colors reflect KISS (even their site is primarly black).

    In relation to the images, can you elaborate on what you mean by optimized? The ones on the front page are all sized and are not large images shrunk down.

    800*600 with favorites turned on? I thought the size of the page that I set it to would display correctly.

    The iframes I added today to try help cleaning up the site. What's everyone else's thoughts on them? (looks like I might be removing them already!)

    You've got some weird double-scrolling action going on in my machine ('it's like the whole page is a giant frame or something) I think it might be the overflow:auto in your body declartion in your stylesheet... just get rid of it, it's an automatic setting anyway. As far as the colors, they're fine - but up that font size man! 8pt font is for the text you don't want people to read, not for main content! Bump it up to at least 10pt and you've got something. Also, maybe try bringing down the contrast of the text to see how it looks (a warm grey would do nicely I think).

    I changed the text to grey and killed the scrolls in the tables. I think where I have an issue with the page is trying to make it work on multiple resolutions. The page uses fixed widths and heights for contents but what do I do to make it look sweet on a bigger res?

    From what I can tell most people are viewing the page at 1024*768. Followed by (with a big gap) 800*600.
