Another site to check, I have validated for css and it has passed, and have been testing it in ff and then ie, everything is ok when previewing it locally then when I upload it the borders to my DIV dissapear and sometimes my background colour in some pages?????? If anyone has any thoughts on where I am going wrong and thoughts on the actual site.

thanks

Lou

You should also check the markup and also have a quick read about shorthand css. Smile

Nice design, bu the implementation could be better.

The text seems a tad too small (I'm running 1152x864, the 'odd people's' resolution) and it could so with some more padding as well. The welcome text needs to be bigger and have a bigger top margin, to push it down from the pictures.

There's a lot to be said about using flash for primary navigation, but I won't go there at the moment.

I think the picture for the "training" link needs to be changed; whereas the others have a defined thick white border, the brave.. one blends in and it doesn't stand out enough that it's also a link.

Nice though Laughing out loud

Hi thanks for your thoughts, I will change the text I thought it was maybe a bit too small and the padding from the top.
I have already tested it for XHTML and failed because of the Flash content which I am well aware of, the client wants to keep the flash, any ideas of making it pass with flash?

Cheers

Lou

Don't know if this will work since I have no flash to validate, but you might try it...

Ask your client if they are willing to alienate customers that do not have flash installed. Smile
