Looks good

I really like the left-hand nav menu. First initial thought was that it was kinda dark and brooding for a business site, but maybe that's just me. You had a couple CSS validation errors and presumably something misaligned in your header (see attachment).

What's going at at the top? Like I said though, looks good.

is it supposed to be a smooth gradient, or is it supposed to be banded and bumpy looking?

If you want a smooth gradient use a PNG instead.

Knight, it's a flash logo. DO you have the flash plugin?

both?

the outer edges are a grainy, but i guess the inside is supposed to be a gradient, won't a png file drastically increase file size?

png

png 24 = 113 k
png 8 = 31.29 k (64 colors, dithering, pattern)
jpg = 24k (50%)

I guess png 8 is a happy medium

thanks for the tips guys!

Oops

Sorry about that, I meant to list the browser version. I got a call at work and had to rush out the reply. I'm using Firefox 2.0.0.3

BG Image

On the topic of the background image- if you think from top to bottom, starting from the top, the bottom 80% could be tiled vertically. Or do you have a specific need for a 800 X 1609px image? Just seems gimongous to me.

left and right columns

I think i need one long image for that, because of the gradient. I would have seperated them into tiling backgrounds for each of the columns, but then when one column is longer than the other, the shorter column doesn't continue the background.

It would be neat, also ( this is just a thought ) if css allowed layering of backgrounds... for instance, i could have the top 300px be the gradient background and then assign another background for a small horizontal tiling image...

Just an idea obviously isn't like that. Thanks again guys!
