    to be fair your site is pretty average - it also doesnt work properly on firefox 3 - its too wide so you logo is out of vision unless i scrol lto the right for a full view - more importantly your 'retouched' photos are not in view for me by default

    are you on a PC??

    my site works fine on all mac's I have been on

    I can't even begin to explain how brain-damaged your site will be if you use Frontpage. Really. Use Dreamweaver, MS Expression Web or Eclipse with the web dev tools if you want a decent WYSIWYG website editor. You can also use them perfectly well for writing the site straight into HTML, as they're normally pretty good editors.

    If you want to go all the way, you can do it in Notepad, but because of no niceties, like remember indentation and syntax highlighting, it's not too good. Notepad++ is a pretty decent one though. Even better, get a host that allows SSH, connect, and use vim/emacs to do the work straight on the server

    Your site works for me in FF3. Also, it tends to be the rendering engine (Gecko, Webkit etc) that you need to code for, not the browser. Just one note though, why why why why WHY is each section of the menu in its own flash file? . A similar effect could have been gotten fine in standard HTML/CSS, and it destroys accessibility for anyone not using Flash...

    Heh. As soon as you start using plugins, you have to take into account the fact that people that don't have the relevant plugin won't be able to see it, so you should never vital sections of your site (like, navigation) into flash unless you really really need to, and then offer a HTML fallback incase the user doesn't have Flash.

    It also makes loads of ugly "Block" buttons above each one for people that use AdBlock :p:

    oooh I see.. thank you

    Random: when ever I hear the word Plugin ... I think of "plug in air fresheners"

    My site has been up for a think almost 3 months now.. when I hosted it there was barely anything there lol .. I just wanted it on the net :rolleyes:

    What I see. Not very alluring...

    The whole thing needs to be moved left to get rid of the horizontal scroll bars. And like someone else has said, don't use Flash for navigation. For people with adblock (like me and probably a large percentage of Firefox users) you'll get a "Block" tab on everything.

    That's also what it looks like Flash-less

    EDIT: Really though, you just need to be a tad more considerate that not everyone uses the same screen res and environment as you
