Not a lot to say, really.
Not a lot to say, really. Nice competent professional looking site. Good color scheme.
Technical points: unless this is a transfer from an earlier page you should really have a strict doctype. The html element should have a namespace specified. You shouldn't need to float that main column and it could be a bit more robust with only the right column floated, but you'd have to re-order your source so the right column comes first.
A little brittle on resize perhaps - not too bad really, better than most. A bit hard to use at 640x480. Better at 800x600 but still requires a horizontal scroll to see it all.
You could make the fact that the graphic is a hyperlink more obvious by giving them a border, instead of having to explain it separately. Or put a text hyperlink directly under the image. Doesn't make a lot of sense for those with images disabled in their browsers. That wording "Click on the image above to see a postcard invitation to the November 16th concert" will make no sense at all to those without eyesite and using aural browsers - they come to concerts too!
Seems useable with stylesheets disabled, a point in it's favour. Looks OK that way, too.
I don't like the 11px fixed font size, though. Hard for older folks to see - they go to concerts, too eh? Better to use ems for font sizes but you'd probably have to re-organize your whole page to accomidate that. Still, users with older versions of IE and bad eyesite will have trouble seeing things.
Hope that's not too harsh...
Not too harsh at all.
Not too harsh at all. Thanks a lot. This is the first page I've done for someone else, so it's good to hear constructive feedback. I actually float the main column because I didn't have to put the right column first in the source. I've read that this is an important thing to consider, but maybe it would be better to have more rigid markup than having the source in the correct order. Thanks for pointing out the image thing...........don't know why I did it that way. I appreciate your feedback.
Source-ordered columns are
Source-ordered columns are good for a good page rank in Google and for screen readers/mobile browsers/those who surf with styles disabled - they get the main content first, without having to wade through tonnes of links.
