Hi,

Our redesigned site is nearing completion. It has been checked in I.E 6 and Firefox 1.0-1.5 (PC) and looks as expected.

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can have a look and check it out on any other browsers not mentioned above and see if there are any outstanding issues, before we add all the other pages of content to it.

Both XHTML + CSS pass validation.

Thanks in advance

Steve

Site check please

When you resize the text, the headings on the left start to overlap the text below so looks like they're not clearing properly. Links under 'services overview' are quite small. Other than that, all looks good.

I love the layout, it fits snuggly in 800x600 and it's still good in 1024x768. The page is very fluid. Nice job. Laughing out loud

Using Safari there seems to be a margin issue in one place. See attachment.

The word "available" hits the dotted border. Smile

Otherwise, it looks great. Clean design, easily read. Nice work.

Thanks for all your comments and suggestions, I have made a few little tweaks accordingly.

Thanks for the screenshot Triumph, hopefully that issue should now be fixed, my fault for uploading the wrong graphic for the faux columns! :roll:

Much appreciated

In Firefox for the Mac, the contact-switch page, the form boxes overlap the side border of the div they are inside by about 10 or 20 px. It looks fine in Safari, and I've included a screenshot of how the Firefox mac browser sees it. See the attachment below.

Also, are the two separate layouts necessary? I guess I would actually feel more comfortable with the site if you were sticking with the same design for each page. For instance, there are two different styles for the main index. Just a thought.

On the other side, I do like the look of both variations...

Thanks for taking a look TymArtist.

That page you were looking at is actually part of the old design, which will be updated very soon.

Thanks again

Steve,

This may be past the point you want to hear anything (!), but I wonder if you might give the lower edges of your content some kind of definition (or run the blue background down a bit more?) -- as they fade on down the page into white, the "shape" of the page is kind of lost, and the content looks a bit lost.

Looks awesome up top, though!

Unfortunately, in MacOsX/IE5.2 (aka The Nightmare), the text on the top right (phone number, etc.) runs under the logo on the left. Also, all the content text (except for the text under the "Content" header, which is fine, and none of the headers) is really small.

Alas, in Safari (but my version's pretty aged now, v.1.2.2) all the top tabs run under the first one. But Opera looks great!

Nice page, great improvement on the old site, in my humble opinion!

Thanks Wendy

I'm not too worried about I.E 5 Mac, I don't think anyone has visited us with that browser until now.

I'm a little concerned about the Safari tab issue that you highlighted. Is there any chance that you could reproduce a screenshot.

Thanks again

Steve

Steve,

Here is a screenshot. The version of Safari is 1.2.2 (v125.7), and I'm using Mac OS 10.3.4.

Let me know if I can help in any other way.

Much appreciated for your help Wendy

I have changed the CSS for the navigation. Can you have another quick check for me to see if I have that little problem nailed!

You will probably need to clear your browsers cache too see the change.

Thanks again for your help
