Hi Pals,

I am designing a new site at www.sercotec.net/zimeks

I will be glad if you inform me, loading time and crossbrowser issues esp. in Safari & Camino

Thanks for your support...

Nice looking site, very CSS Zen Garden.

It is kind of a slow loader. I checked in Mac FF and Safari (Don't have Camino). Safari was quite slow, although I didn't time it. The header image took quite a while to load. You could maybe jpeg that header down a little more. . .

Most of your links go to unknown pages, but I imagine you know that.

Nice! I like it.

Once upon a time (before I was not aware of css stuff) my designs were called "template monster" design (not because they were too good but style was somewhat similar).

After I started using css now I got my Zen Garden Rank, thank you for that compliment Smile

Sorry for the header I forgot jpg quality ratio at %96 at firefox Smile

The site is still under construction only home & chamois leather links and its sub links are working at the moment.

Thank for your kind comments...

My word, you do have a fine eye for design and colour. I first noticed it on Tuluyhan Ugurlu's web site, but this one is stunning IMO.

The graphics are clean and crisp but if you feel download times, particularly on dial-up, are a bit protracted, perhaps you could consider pre-loading the images. It would be a shame to optimize them too much just for the sake of download times.

I noticed a couple of cross-browser oddities:
In Opera there is no maroon background on hover on the top links.
In IE if you toggle between Home and Chamois Leather, there is a noticeable left shift of 1-2 pixels of Chamois Leather contents.

Super job though and I look forward to seeing much more of your work.

Thank you for your kind words Lorraine.

The speed issue may be due to my test server's speed. It is not a heavy duty server. The total of the index page is 89 K with pictures I guess it is normal for dial-up connection.

I have checked the issues with IE 6 and Opera 7.54 that worked fine.
it took a while to load rollover images with opera that is all.

Thank you again for your kind comments , I am glad to share my work with you pals...

Ah - I should have mentioned it was Opera 7.21 where rollover images do not load at all. While I'm here you have spelt Rights wrong in the copyright. There are also some issues with the way English is written in the copy. That may be nothing to do with you, but let me know if you want some proof-reading done.
