Yeah, I think thats ok - nice colours etc - not sure about the blokey in the top right hand corner !! -also I think the menu on the left shouldn't use underlines to show they are links - better to use style sheet, change the colour on roll over..
like you have with a couple of the links.

Otherwise yeah its cool - welcome to dic

i dont see any underlines on the left sidebar arnie?

and i say juts extend that left sidebar to the bottom of the page, and your set. very professional and clean... maybe a little work could be done on the header it just doesnt fit as well but besides that its good stuff. nice work.

hey i like underline rollovers and use them all the time. that's a matter of preference, not "better" or worse. :)

i love the site, and think it looks great.

the only thing i really see as being out of place is the big gray box in the middle of the front page. first off, it's several pixels too wide (compared to the column underneath). also, it just seems like a dark block in the middle of an otherwise light page... so it stands out a bit. maybe a lighter background colour on that?

looking at your code, my biggest beef is that many of your attributes are missing quotation marks (height=590 should be height="590").

the other thing is the overabundance of tables... but that's secondary. :)

You might want to get rid of the 10 pixel margins around the edge of the page; they kind of ruin the layout. :)

i don't see any margins in moz, except for the little one on the right by the scrollbar, which isn't a problem. :)

I really like it, other than I don't think that shade of yellow quite fits with it (i'm not a fan of off-yellow to begin with). Also, no margins here codeman :/

Only other complaint I can think of is that either the server is slow or my connection is being bogged down by a hundered users right now... because it takes forever to load all the images. I think it's just my net though...

It seams to me that there is too much stuff, going on. I can't get myself to focus on any one part of the site, I had to look for a while befor I could decide what to do... I think it might be that gray box, it just distracts me, you might try a nise pastel color that doesn't draw all the viewers attention...

"topmargin" and "leftmargin" aren't real attributes so they aren't recognized by stricter browsers like Opera. I get the 10px margin in Opera. None in IE. and only on the bottom of Mozilla. I'd fix it even if you don't think any visitors will be using Opera because the way things are going, IE may finally treat those deprecated attributes like...well, deprecated attributes. :)
