I've just finished building a new website for a friend and wanted to get people's thoughts on the layout and CSS.

http://www.sussexvehiclewraps.co.uk

I've validated it and the CSS is fine. There's a couple of HTML validation errors which are caused by me using asp.net it seems but nothing serious.

It displays okay in the browsers I've tested in. My only real niggle is that in Chrome there's a 1px gap between the main menu and sub menu when in the galleries (http://www.sussexvehiclewraps.co.uk/Gallery/gallery.aspx?group=1) but not in IE. I can't seem to fix this without messing up IE. Any thoughts on how to correct this?

All comments and critiques welcomed.

Cheers,
Steve

OP has one. It's the logo.

OP has one. It's the logo. It's what I tend to click on when I want to go back to the home page. I usually get upset when the logo isn't clickable.

Yes the logo is the home

Yes the logo is the home link. The client didn't ask for a home link on the menu and I'm not too sure one is required.

Cheers,

I personally find it

I personally find it irritating when I can't see a Home navigation link. I am fully aware that you can click the logo to go back to the homepage on most sites but this is not clear to the casual web user.

I would say that most people

I would say that most people would expect to arrive back at the index page after clicking on the logo. To me that idea of a home nav button seems little outdated and reminds me of homepages from years ago. This said though I would keep in mind my target group. Obviously if you have a site aimed at old people then maybe a home nav button would be a necessity.
