    Sorry to put it like this but, well, YUK!

    • The image in the blue bar you can only see some of the left of
    • The maincontent should have a margin-left
    • Copryright © 2004, Paula Osborne has a spelling mistake in it
    • Copryright © 2004, Paula Osborne makes you have to scroll the main window
    • The Nav Bar uses Comic Sans:

    Arrow yep...

    I have to agree with error404 on this one. I hope you didn't charge this poor woman for glueing together that website. If you did I think you'd better give it back. lol. As fo the spelling mistakes, c'mon man if you can't spell at least learn to use a spell checker before you publish someones website. I think you should quit web design and become a janitor or something.... ouch that was mean...

    Okay, Im still not finished with the website... Thats why I asked to rate it, so I can make changes. I didnt mean to make a mistake with Copyright. Its called a typo... Will change comic sans thing... Didnt know I was using that font... oops..
    Also, what do you mean by this: The image in the blue bar you can only see some of the left of

    Thank you... I think...
    What other changes should I make, to improve?

    BTW, should I make the main content and the infobar have a smaller height, and change the size of the copyright bar, so that the page stays in the screen, instead of having to scroll down?

    Oh, don't use the http://www.paulaosborne.com/Images/header.jpg as a background, as it's wreaking your layout, use it as an image with the css for the img.

    - Lose the frame. It just looks unprofessional and you don't need it.
    - Lose the GMT timestamp. Same reason.
    - Don't use percentages for your header image. The image looks distorted at different resolutions.
    - You are using font tags? Those tags should no longer be used especially since you've implemented the use of CSS. Define your font sizes in your CSS.
    - Your menu dropdowns disappear off the right side. The colors in the menu also look weird in comparison to the rest of the color scheme.

    And always keep in mind when designing websites...."Just because you can, doesn't mean you should".

    Get rid of the part that says GMT -6, or the entire clock itself... I was mainly implementing this because she didnt want people with different timezones calling her late at night, or early morning.Of course, I will remove i
    f needed. Also, I am not using a frame... Im using php includes tho... By frame, do you mean the scrollbar in the div. If so, I will remove that. I will define font tags with css, and get rid of font tags.. Working on rite now.
    I will bump the menu over to the left a bit, so that this will not happen.
    Thanks a bunch for all of the help...

    Any messup looks rite now are cuz Im trying to fix all of these errors..

    Spookster, the reason I quoted you was because I was keeping what you said in mind while I was designing the page. I was trying not to do too much, which may have led to a complete failure...

    I meant lose the timestamp period. If she wants people to only call during certain hours then list her hours on the site. If people calling from different timeszones is that bad of a problem then also list the hours for the most common timezones.

    I didn't look at the code that closely so I assumed you were probably using an iframe. Yes remove the scrolling. If news sites like CNN.com can pack huge amounts of information in one page without using frames or scrolling div's then you can fit that little bit of content on there without one as well. If the layout of the pages is forcing you to use frames or scrolling div's then change the layout.

    Okay, Will lose the clock completely. Im still working on some of the scrolling div issues...

    Okay, I have made a few of those changes. The div should not be scrolling anymore. I removed the clock, and I am in the process of removing the font tags.
