http://normaltac.org this is the first web site that I have truly created from scratch and maintained, it was created for a group that I participate in at my local library.  This is the third (and final) redesign, and I thought some of the people here might offer some suggestions.  All the pages are similar, but some of the pages past the homepage my not be completely styled.  Feel free to poke around though.

Its ok.
The text -> Posted By... should be smaller and less noticeable.

I would like a taller header image, and perhaps a logo of some sort.

More padding on the left is needed.

The navigation meny could do with some work. Have the a:hover go the full width - rather than just the text background to change.

Thanks for the replys! I'm trying to get my artistic friend to make a new banner and I'm working on a logo.

Also a note: the hover works fine in FireFox and not IE because IE only supports :hover on the A tag, so the highlighting you see in IE is really a fallback.  (try looking at it in FireFox, it's a fun effect).  I'm very happy that IE7 will support :hover on all tags, but it's stuck the way it is for now.

- I agree. Change the font.

As for the a:hover -> yes it looks better in firefox. You can get it working on IE - its just that your doing the implementation incorrectly.
The following is an example of how I got it working:
<a href='index.php?id=3' class='links'><img name='bullets' src='bulletg.gif' alt='-' border='0' /> Contacts</a>
Its on http://kartbuilding.net/misc/es if you want to take a look.
