Hi Just looking at the home

Hi

Just looking at the home page ...

In IE the vertical gap between the sections is much smaller than FF and the dotted lines in FF start a couple of pixels over to the right in comparison.

As to the logo. Where the colors slash back, these might look better faded. I just remade the logo and it does!

Thanks... yeah don't know

Thanks... yeah don't know what to do about the vertical gap in IE; but I don't think it detracts from the site or does it? I could say the same about the dotted line as well... any ideas?

Would love to see your remade logo.

Thanks again for the reply.

A few minor points

Not sure about placing the selected menu item in uppercase, otherwise the coloration works.
Please note that your site does not degrade at all. Any reason for this?
I can scroll vertically even though there is no text in the footer left to be shown, so there is probably some dimensioning you might want to take care of.

Otherwise clean code and an overall well done job.

Tested in FF1.5 and IE6.0

Just thought the uppercase made the selected page stand out more.
I don't know what you mean by does not degrade at all? Please explain.
The vertical scroll is there so if I have a smaller page, it doesn't jump left/right when arriving from a larger page.

Thanks for the comments, I look forward to your explanation.

Here's the Pic

Hi

Back after the weekend away.

Here's the pic (see attachment).

The extra margins are probably as a result of the collapsing margins bug in IE. But, whatever, are bound to be margins. The dotted lines moving may be a result of the 3px float bug in IE, as it looks like 3 pixels to me.

The phone number in your header disappears behind the main content area when you resize the text a bit.

Trevor; Thanks for the

Trevor;
Thanks for the image... may have to give it a go. I initially didn't see the problem with the dotted lines because on my laptop connected to a 17" monitor it looks the same in IE as it does in FF... but when I view on my desktop with a 19" monitor I notice the difference... WIERD.

It seems that giving the left side a bit more width and reducing right side width fixes the dotted line problem?

Removing bottom margin on row and row1 fixes the extra vertical gap?

Tyssen; should be able to get two text size increases now?
