    Post launch tweaking for my first website

    Hi all,

    Lots of people on here have given me exceptional help and support with developing both this site, and my knowledge, for which I'm really grateful. I just wanted to share the fruits of my labour... and ask for more help!

    This is the site:

    I'm reasonably happy with the code although I know it has room for improvement! although I tested it pretty well on my own machine using FF3.5, IE8, Safari, Opera and Chrome, I have noticed a couple of glitches on other machines - mainly that the image slideshow on the homepage is out of place in IE?!
    I haven't had chance to go back and look at this yet - it only happened once on a friend's laptop - but if anyone else has this problem and any suggestions I'd really appreciate it.

    Mainly I wanted to ask if there was anyway to make it load more smoothly? If you've clicked the link you'll appreciate why I'm asking!

    ANY constructive feedback will be appreciated as I know there is room for all sorts of improvement

    But basically, you should minify JS libraries, put scripts at the bottom, <noscript> should NOT be used, instead you should lay down all the html and make use of the JS libraries only as a progressive enhancement to reduce and make slideshows, specify both width and height for images. from here

    Remove the text-align:center from the slideshow as IE will centre nested block level elements in error.

    #slideshow {
        height: 350px;
    /*    text-align:center;*/
    If you want a review of the design then we have a special forum for that (website reviews).
