Long time, no see. So I've let you guys hack apart sites for my clients. Thought I'd put mine on the butchers block now that I have time for one. Click and tell me what you think, I only have the front page sort of done and the about section, the rest is under construction.

Thanks in advanced!

It looks good to me, but I peeked under the hood.

I was disappointed by "Rodzilla ...Implements CSS 2.0 Design" and then finding tables for layout.
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

:) Way to go placeholder text!

Actually I'm in the middle of CSS design. Right now, just tables. Sorry for that confusion.

I also think it looks pretty good, but I'd like to see how you implement the services and portfolio pages.  Also agree on the tables.  Why even start with tables and then redo the code?

Ya - looks good. Implementation could be better. There are NO a:hover effects for the navigation. It needs some xhtml and css effects IMO.

You need some hover effects as everyone else said, but I like it a lot. Can't wait to see the site when it's finished.

Yeah, when I saw the web standard and no jscript error icons on my web-dev toolbar I thought the same.

This wouldn't be too hard to layout "-tables". Otherwise ... very clean and visually professional.

I did expect the bold, white rightcolumn headerbar text to be links and actually clicked on them to see. That's a wasted motion because I am ingrained to expect text there to be links.

One of the keys to navigation is to lay it out as people expect (make it mindless and automatic so they don't have to think about nav and can concentrate on content) ... don't make them learn new navigation and don't make them waste motion (time) clicking on just text where it is usually links.
