    You're right, it looks incomplete.

    There's too much space between menu block and content for my liking.

    Fuzzy...

    Your background graphics have a fuzzy feeling to it; I personally like crisp lines much better. Moreover, using such a huge background image isn't a very good approach: besides taking forever to load, even on a fast connection, it's very inflexible, which is proven by your content spilling over the border.

    I strongly recommend not seeing a web page as a canvas where you paint pictures and paste text on, but approach it as a text document first, get the structure right, and then add adornment and graphics.

    You should optimize it for an 800 x 600 res... and a 56k connection.

    in moz1.1 (very capable standards based gecko engined browser) the content alignment and background alignment are non consistent.

    I would suggest nesting your divs within a containment element, perhaps position:relative and absolute for secondaries.

    The bio page forces the images (which simply must be optimized - photographic jpegs would be fine at 15-25% compression, which should shave an easy 60% off the filesize) over the underlying text and distorts the page.

    Also, I'd suggest creating a page for viewing larger images rather than using a new window.

    It does though look like you are heading in the right direction there, just a few glitches to iron out. Good work

    I fixed the images (I think) made little thumbnails of them and I got the page to see the larger images up, but havent uploaded it.

    .. Im workign now on the CSS thingy, but I dont seem to find a way to make the alignment consistent (Im not really good with CSS, a friend helped me a bit.. but hes not here anymore).. well Ill continue my work... =]

    Hey, looking good man.

    One prob though, at high resolutions your content and framing graphics don't line up properly. I attached a screenshot to show you what I mean.

    IE6 1400x1050 resolution.
