    Great color scheme, it really fits with a limo service.

    You have several different fonts occuring throughout the site, and even on the same page in some instances. You should pick a font and stick with it on every page. For example, the Home page starts with one font, then changes below the graphic. The "Services" page's list changes fonts 3 or 4 times within the very same list.

    The Services page has a large empty area before the text starts; looking at the source code it looks like there are a bunch of empty tags thrown in. (I'm using Firefox 2.0.0.12)

    None of the pages have a title.

    You may want to specify which county, or even state or country, your company serves. (The rates page says "Lowest prices in the county!" but it would be nice to know which county)

    The "error" alert on the reservations page contains <br> tags in the text.

    When I submitted a reservation I got no feedback if the reservation worked; it just bounced me back to the home page; same with contact form.

    One more note; you need to have the name of the company in the header area, so whatever page you are on, you see that company name. Constant reminder of which company we're dealing with helps it stick in the brain.

    Some of your images are a bit hefty, can you resize them with an image editor instead of with html code? (Example dinners.jpg) They will load faster that way.

    Agreed with Fumigator, the font switching is a little irritating when you want to skim the page for information.

    He's right about the font. There are four things I cannot stand: bad grammar, Mac zealots, my wife's habit of spending incredible amounts of money without my prior knowledge, and, the most relevant, terrible typography. You should have one typeface for your body and one for your headings (this can be extended, of course, but it's good to keep to them.) It'll also be nice to have the color lightened a bit to something nearer to #fff (pure white); maybe #111?

    Are you suggesting that I should not get married then? I still have time to back out...

    You get married and the money becomes "ours", not "yours" and "mine". Make sure you both talk about this a lot, because the #1 cause of divorce is money problems. As long as you're both on the same page then the rest of marraige is easy.

    Oh I also recommend avoiding debt, saving up to buy cars even. It makes life Soooooo peaceful. Reluctantly you'll probably need to borrow to buy a house, but other than that just stay away from all debt.

    Your question about how to provide feedback after a form is submitted should be posted in the proper forum (PHP if you use PHP, for example).

    Since you hate terrible typography so much, got any atricles on it? I'm lost when it comes to that as I never cared about font before I started designing. Thanks!

    The Elements of Typographic Style by Robert Bringhurt is an excellent crash course in typography, and I highly recommend it. Web typography I've just picked up as I went along. I would hazard a guess that Jon Tangerine would have an interesting quip or two on the subject.

    Your site looks clean. The font issued discussed above is the biggest problem. I like the "black" look of your home page. Personally, I would remove the bright and distracting color of the shot of SD. Convert it to a duo tone, and then go back and put the yellow back in the windows.
    Like your menu.
    Better copy would help alot, get a professional copywriter to look it over. Over all, nice site.
