Hi again. My own company asked me to redo their website, but don't really have anyone here to bounce the design off of. Tell me what you think about the new one. The flash banner is a work in progress - I'm an extreme flash newbie. The new site is really only the front page. The 'services' option on the menu drops down for a bit of effect. Everything should validate.

I don't much care for the bottom navigation to tell you the truth

I love the above navigational structure, the flash area looks great, and the login thing is set up good.

I HONESTLY, think that you should take all that css and kick it into an external style sheet, and link it that way.

Other than that everything looks great to me

except the small issue, the alignment of the bullets for
Welcome and announcements, arent' completely even.

Everything else looks great.

Hi - a few things to note:

First off - I hope you optimise your pictures - your website is 443kB !! - This is quite a lot and makes your website look poor untill fully loaded.

The Crawford Communications banner and the div on top of it (login one) are way too tall IMO.
I have to go way way down the page before I start reading some text. At 800X600 - 1/2 your screen is just banner.

The username & password - why is this login area on a darker grey background? - Id say to run across the light grey from the left and use this light grey bg. for the login area aswell.

Also your Blue Crawford Communications Div - Your Image runs out (not long enough) at my res. - 1024X1280.

You might have alignment issues - the login is way up at the top right - your text stays at the bottom left. Even at 1024 X 768 - your website (text - main body area) is still very narrow.

I would like to see a a:hover for your horizontal nav. - Just an underlining of the text etc.

Overall it looks good - just some issues to sort out.

yeah new one is better. old one just feels cramped.

i'll go with what's been said already - only thing to add for now is i'd suggest removing the underlined links in your dropdown menu. a simple 'text-decoration' in your css/style defs should sort it out.

I say old chap, that is rather amusing!
