    The site looks quite pleasing on the eye. The couple of things that I noticed straight away were, where the blue and green rectangle on the left joins up with the large blue rectangle the top and bottom patterns don't match up. Also the shadow at the base of the left hand blue and green rectangle is sort of cut off and doesnt fade into the grey background.

    To start with, your html has 21 errors.

    At large resolutions your footer text extends into the gray to the right of your layout.

    On zooming into your layout, it breaks completely.

    The screen shots below were taken at a 1600 X 680 resolution.

    Couldn't follow the link.

    My company's firewall blocked it due to the presence of ActiveX (...and a perfectly reasonable reaction as far as I'm concerned). Do you want users from competent companies who have banned ActiveX?

    I like the layout.

    contact_us.htm & order.htm - shows Method Not Allowed when button is clicked. Have a captcha and server-side validation.

    Black text over that version of blue ? Its a bit dark-on-dark I think.

    Your contact_us/html page has the left portion of the footer misaligned.



    @Fremeere: ActiveX ? Im using FireFox.

    I'm using FireFox. It is not, though, the company default. And it is not the default of a great many companies. And the filters are set accordingly.

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
    Unless you like having Internet Explorer in quirks mode, you'll want to remove the XML encoding from the top of your Web page, especially since you're serving the document as regular HTML (text/html instead of application/xhtml+xml).

    I'm not too fond with the tables being used for the site's overall layout, since you're ensuring that any changes made to the site will be long and tedious, and the tabular layout can also prevent some people from accessing the site (it's not common, but has happened to people before). Anohter "downer" for me is the fact that I have to scroll horizontally to read the content at 800x600 (what I normally keep my browsers at).

    As has been noted elsewhere, the footer is broken in multiple browsers; Opera 9.22 shows a slight shift, while Internet Explorer 7 shows a much more pronounced gap. I didn't check in Firefox, K-Meleon, IE 6 or Safari though.

    You have a nice (almost Zen-like) design, but I don't think the woman on the right side of the content area is appropriate. But I'll get back to that picture in a moment, since there's something present in it I REALLY LIKE and I think you're overlooking.

    Your brownish background is competing with the foreground a bit too much for my taste (kinda heavy on the contrast and balance if you ask me). Have you thought about taking the background from the filler pic (the one with the nice gradient) and tiling that on the x-axis and using that as your site's background by any chance?

    Back to the usability and accessibility of the site, if you turn off the images in your browser, you'll find it's impossible to navigate. If I were to be using a screen reader (yes, my vision is horrible, thankfully it's not that bad) or a text-based browser like Lynx, how would I even be able to find my way across your site? What about on my cell phone (which would choke on your table layout anyway, never mind the lack of text-based navigation aids)?

    These are things that you may want to keep in mind.

    I agree Dan! Generic posts like that aren't particularly helpful...

    When i mouse over the menues, the images seem to change and it looks kind of like the menu warps, i really don't like that, you should make it a totally clean hover.

    Also in ie7 the bottom blue and whire line does not match up and is broken where it connects between content and menu.

    thanks for all the replies , i was getting little disheartened that the review hadn't come up initially . I do understand it needs to go through moderation.
    I will go through all the comments now and get on the fixing .
    I will post back soon .

    I think i have fixed the error in the white border as in the screenshot above , and have also inserted Alt tags for people needing aid in navigation.
    BUT , what i would like to know is :
    I have now put in the Flash ... i like it , but am uncertain as any one would be able to understand easily what to do with it . :unsure:
