    Thanks for the tips about the font, I changed it looks much better, I always seem to make the mistake of using my default font of time's new! perhaps i better default to something else for the future!!

    ehhh you must be one hell of a coder... lol
    Well I dont know about one hell of a coder but, the book by Kevin Yank "Build your own database driven website using Php & MySql" certainly give me a good starting point!!

    Your borders don't really look good on your page, I think it is because some of them are thick and some are thin, also they look really jagged when curving on the corners.

    Your title and banner need some work, maybe some graphics or nice design, also the title text shouldn't be beveled and that is a huge drop shadow behind it :ermm:

    I don't think the design is terrible, but add some more graphics to give it some interest.

    Keep up the good work,

    I like the layout, but the graphics are awful.

    All of your corners are jagged. The phrase in brush script needs to be anti-aliased. Brush up on your photoshop skills, and add some better graphics...it'll look 100% better.

    The title at the top "Silverside Home" needs some work.. it looks too dark does not pop at all, im not talking about font but just in contrast.. then there is the alrady said comments like the boarders and overall jaggedness in some areas..

    I hope you dont mind but i took a miniute and worked on the header graphic a bit to show you what i was talking about..

    just as an example as to what you might want to consider.. make it look inviting.. your layout looks good just needs some minor polishing.. good work.
