Site design & color scheme

Hi

It looks quite neice form a color/fonts/graphics point of view.

In IE6:

The left vertical Product Menu border is broken in the bottom left border in 1024x768. Re-size smaller and it fixes as soon as the light gray area (same color as below footer) appears.

The very top bar. The call free... on the left and the menu on the right overlap each each as screen re-size about 800 ish wide and smaller. If the were floats, the right one would drop down under the left if there was no room, wouldn't it?

The email link at the bottom. On hover jumps 1px to the right and stays there even after the mouse moves away!

The main header is three parts, which all run over each other as the screen gets smaller width.

Hi

Looks tons better. The email thing still does it. Try clearing your cache before viewing it (load it once then force a refresh by doing ctrl+F5). That's what I have to do to get it to jump.

Not sure why it does it. And why does that spane have float:left AND clear:left ?

I'm not sure why it does it either... originally I had two items
one above the other in the LH side of the footer and that was the only way I could get it to work...

Site design & color scheme

just to add

I notice the original site is red and black on white.

Many companies would be loath to change their corporate colours. You may want to check with them on that, or have a second stylesheet using red and black on white to show them.

The test site is much cleaner than the old one, but maybe they do not want to change their colours.

I do notice the directory is called color so maybe they have asked you to change them, but just in case.

Regards
Day

What do you mean that the test site is much cleaner than the old site?

not as busy, easier to read, partly due to the use of a better font.
