      Well... I have a question, with a comment

      On the top menu, when you mouse over an image, all kinds of other options come available below - are these going to be links as well? If so, I would suggest (Yes, I know it's overused) a drop down menu - it's a lot nicer for navagability (is that a word??) and is more straight forward.

      If you don't want to write your own, there are several free menus available out there that you can customize to your liking...

      take a look at the menus on DynamicDrive.com

        ive done ddmenus till my eyes bleed problem is our print/dtp guy here has more swing with the directors - so he overrides me and my boss is bored of DD menus too!

        thing is that this is quite a quick, no fuss was of navigating - i will also incorporate cookies so that u can always see what page you are on - like the right menu options are lit

          Ok, yeah - if your boss doesn't like em, then you gotta respect that opinion (considering, your boss probably has his name on your paychecks )

          As another suggestion then, how bout sliding the menus in from the side - just to draw more attention to them?

            @ justa (didnt see yours 1st time )

            erm - the guy who wrote is is the CEO of our company, a multimillionairre who is also met the queen and got some awards - im not correcting his english!

            the body of the document is not finished either...

            the code is FAR from NS4 ready - and will prolly only be made functional - im sick of workaround for that browser

            floating an image? is there a way to do it in NS4? i know how do do it in CSS but NS screws it up

                Yeah, like I said - it's a really nice site....

                It just might help to draw a little more attention to the menus - some users might get lots with all the buttons... you could try using different colors, animated images, etc.

                Just beware of making it cheesy

                Let me know how it goes - so far, it looks great though!

                  OH wait, I'm sorry - I just looked at the site again - it took a while to load all the images, so when I was mousing over them, they didn't do anything

                  disregard my previous suggestions

                  The site looks great!!!

                  BTW - I really like the top images, and the fixed background image looks awesome!

                    Hmmm, loads slowly, the menu items look weird; the text on the buttons looks funny at my resolution (1280*960) the buttons also look huddled together too much too...
                    The main text is fine, good colour, font and size.

                      Looks *very* nice in Mozilla 1.0

                      Though the mouseover images are very slow on my dialup... and they stay slow even after downloading them once...

                        the mouseovers are prolly slow as the dreamweaver rollovers arent that good... im gonna build the whole thing as a much faster array at a later date and not use the DW rollovers - this was simply something that i rushed together yesterday afternoon
