Hi :)

very cute baby.

Here is a few tips. Your design currently seems very amateurish.

I am viewing your page with a 1152 x 864 resolutions and your page (the useful part ) is at the top of the page barely taking up half the available space.

Simple things like css style sheets can help beauty up your page.

Also there is heaps of templates you can purchase or get free on the net.

Good luck!

cheers for you input, but the site is pure CSS.

my main problem is viewing it through IE on a Mac. the navigation is set by the following style.

{position:absolute;margin-top:75px;margin-left:-65px;width:150px;}

this works fine on the pc but totally messes up on the mac.

how can i fix it so its positioned in the same place.

Good theme. The site is simple, but the images should have been more better. Especially the title image at top. It looks distorted here.

Well written literature (I read just the day the baby was born).

Keep on updating the design Uncle.. chears..

snaildev, i know about the images looking a little distorted. they were ok till i converted them to a gif.
i'm waiting to get a copy of the orig images again so i can redo them.

thanks again guys. any more ideas/comments are welcome.

I see you are using a dreamweaver template to do this, although I don't know much about dwt anymore there are a few things I would say.

1) you are using a frame, I am not really sure of the reason for this since the content is the entire page, the only content outside the frame is the background which you could easily take care of in css.

2) I suppose with the #content area being to high on a mac, try giving it more margin at the top. You will also probably want to give it more on the left side as well to fit into firefox well.

good luck with the images.

digitelle,

1) the site is pure css, the frame you are seeing is the fact that the domain name is forwarding to some personal space. if you right click on the actuat pace and view source you will see what i mean.

2) i'll give that a go.

cheers and thanks

i tried viewing it with IE and it works perfectly. With Opera and Firefox though, there were few problems. The images in your galleries shows right under each other without any space. Its looks as if the photos from top to bottom is one single image.
The Contact Me page only works with IE and is very awkward with the other two browsers

One other thing i noticed is the header image. It does not really fit, it looks like it was shrinked or Expanded.
