    So, that's the first serious review! You need to use the alt attribute of img to show the alternate text for users who have no way to see your image.

    Code:
    <P align=center><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 18pt"><FONT face="Impact, Sans-Serif]"><IMG alt="Official Release Date: February 1st 2008 :)" src="/Wifee&#37;20Teaser.png-for-web-LARGE.jpg" align=absMiddle></FONT></SPAN></P>
    <P align=center><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 18pt"><FONT face=Impact color=#ffffff><A href="/expect.html">What to Expect</A>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <A href="/staff.html">Current Staff List</A>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <A href="/sfm.html">Super Flying Monkey</A></FONT></SPAN></P><BR></BODY>
    Plus I have just realised what the alt means! Thanks for that.

    Hope you haven't heard about the w3 standards. It suggests to use a proper doctype at the very beginning of all web documents. It also suggest us to use smaller case letters for all tags and attribute. After all it's a good practice to validate your code

    People are missing the point. It's not about the code, it's about the look.

    I would say any great looking page that doesn't have good code, is a still a bad page. There isn't even that much code to make this site, so validation wouldn't take much.

    I don't agree with the text being in the images. That means that if an image doesn't load or something that nothing is seen. Also text in an image isn't indexed by search engines.

    Honestly put, I just don't know what I'm supposed to be waiting for. Is this a business that is coming? Is this an event? Its not really clear at all on the front page, and if I saw that I would just leave without looking around. There needs to be something credible on the frontpage to give some direction about the purpose of the site.

    I don't get "Don't Leave The Country". I am leaving the country, which made me think, is this a site about terrorism, reasons not to leave, or something?

    I've heard that Google takes down by threat of serious litigation domain names that are somewhat close to their trademark... gboogle is pretty close, hopefully you'll fly under the radar!

    Bad.

    It's just 3 images with a similar background and plain gray text.

    1) The background is mediocre
    2) You don't need the text as part of the images
    3) The alt text doesn't sum up the images in most cases

    What's worse is that it's very alike to a "under construction" website.
    If I came to that webpage, I would want to know what's there; you should tell us what the site will be about (I do realize there's a "what to expect" page, but it still doesn't tell me what it is; it just gives a bunch of web features which are quite commonly tossed around), and maybe a little bit about who did it. Else the visitor wouldn't come back, and you might as well have used a blank page.

    And you misspelt "Don't".

    I'd have to say it isn't.

    As others have mentioned putting all your text in images is bad practice. Even has a teaser site, you should maybe provide a little bit more information on what the site will be about (like specifics). At this point you want people to come back later when it is done. But between not being indexed by search engines and not providing any real information, that won't happen in most cases.

    The code is a mess too. You have either missing or unclosed tags like the html one. You have no doctype as well. You will also want to seperate out your CSS into an external file.

    The biggest issue though is that all your content is in images.

    Ok. Ive took into consideration everything you guys have said. I am now rebuilding the images and making it all into text (well, nearly all of it.)

    Thanks!
