Hello there people.

I finally completed my 3rd redesign of my website. [a href=\"http://www.webtodesign.net\" target=\"_blank\"]www.webtodesign.net[/a]

It is an online portfolio of all of my work.

Comments and critique is appreciated [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":smile:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /]

Its not too bad.

Its a little dark for my liking with the text a shade on the small side.
The Nav menu is nice, the a:hovers and all - HOWEVER it is a little TOO subtle with the white text on the NAV corresponding to the page you are on. The corresponding Tab on the NAV bar should clearly show when you are on the assocaited page. Either make the text more white, bold it, or but the colour bottom border on it.

The "web2design" text should be an Image IMO. - it would look better rather than aliased text.

Id like to see a better header image also.

Your about page is broken in IE6 !!
Your news page is also broken in IE6 !!

And as for [a href=\"http://www.chilledsaladfork.com/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.chilledsaladfork.com/[/a] - 8.6 megs!! Quite a lot for that FLASH animation.

Rgds,
Steve

You have tables. Why do you have tables? Tables are bad for layout.
Also, on your "Book" page (I was expecting a published book information page, not a guestbook. Why do you even have one there?) your input fields stick out of the rounded box.
Disclaimer: No matter how harsh I may be, I'm always IMO only.

Thank you for the comments [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":smile:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /].
I will try and make my navigation better, have the orange underline stay when it is on that page.

I didn't want to use lots of images, because then if I needed to change something I could just edit the text.

What do you mean by a header image? Are you talking about the logo or what [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/huh.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":huh:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"huh.gif\" /]

I have no idea why the about page is broken in IE6..weird.. but I will try and fix that. I will fix the news page right away.

And the flash site, I know I know, a long loading time, that's because there is a 14 minute song [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":smile:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /]

Thank you for the comments and critique. I really appreciate it [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/laugh.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":laugh:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"laugh.gif\" /]

I decided to use tables because it was easier on me. I know it's bad and all...but if an average person looks at it, he cannot tell the difference [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":smile:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /]

I have the guestbook so people can leave their comments about my site. I just wanted that little feature. And waht browser are you using? because I checked the guestbook page in firefox and IE and the input feilds look fine.

Thank you for the comments and critique. I really appreciate it [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":smile:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /]

The header image - the gold leaf and TEXT etc. I think it could be better grouped together to give a logo or something. It just looks fragmented and seperate at the minute.

As for the Guest Book. The positioning looks ok now - must have been my mistake. HOWEVER the top of the rounded box is broken, see [a href=\"http://kartbuilding.net/misc/webtodesign.jpg\" target=\"_blank\"]http://kartbuilding.net/misc/webtodesign.jpg[/a]
Also - the Submit Text is VERY small.

P.S. Im using IE 6.
