Overall nice site, good and simple. You need an enter site button after your flash intro gets done playing, instead if just the skip intro link. Also, you might want to do something else with the intro instead of it looking like its typed...maybe have the words rollover as they appear....? And on your information pages, the page title is almost covered up by the top link frame, maybe you could space them down a little further and make them a little bigger....that would really add to the professionalness of the site. Nice Job!

Thats really easy, all you did was put 2 pictures in, on main pages, not flash...
You can do that with Frontpage.
whatever.

Oh and just to be helpfull, on 3 of your pages you have a big gap in your left images going through the pc, and you can save on disk space by using basic <hr> for your dividers instead of an actual image, a page has the dreaded horizontal needed due to long strings of text and personally i'd re align the text so it fits in neatly between the end of your banner and your base image, change the green button to a blue one and you may be onto a winner.

The general rule is ever time you make your users click to get to your site content you will lose 1/3 of your visitors. Therefore a landing page without any content and a link for FF and a diff for IE will only hurt you and make you lose customers.

The harsh reality is that site visitors DON'T CARE. Its your job to make the WANT to see what your site has to offer. If you have to make the user figure out what browser they're using and then click next the just aren't going to do it.

Spend the time to make your site work in all major browsers at once and get rid of the pointless landing page.

Yeah I agree the landing page is useless ... And then, how can you offer web design like this, your HTML has 29 errors in it Click here to see them. Your page isn't properly centered and also not properly offset to the left (IE7). That doesn't make sense to me ...

I went and tried to view all your web-designs, but I could only see one, the rest ... HTTP 404-not found.

I then checked out your Graphic design ... Your graphic design skill are good ... very ...

Then on the contact page, maybe you should have some required fields, because until they are there, I'd love sending you useless info, just because I can ...

Then you need to be able to auto detect the users browser and then load the relevant stylesheet for that browser ... Then you'll have to use a CSS though and not that weird way that you code using so many tables ...
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE = "JavaScript">
<!--
var browser = '';
var version = '';
var entrance = '';
var cond = '';
// BROWSER?
if (browser == ''){
if (navigator.appName.indexOf('Microsoft') != -1)
browser = 'IE'
else if (navigator.appName.indexOf('Netscape') != -1)
browser = 'Netscape'
else browser = 'IE';
}
if (version == ''){
version= navigator.appVersion;
paren = version.indexOf('(');
whole_version = navigator.appVersion.substring(0,paren-1);
version = parseInt(whole_version);
}
if (browser == 'IE' && version >= 4) document.write('<'+'link rel="stylesheet" href="ie.css" />');
if (browser == 'Netscape' && version >= 2.02) document.write('<'+'link rel="stylesheet" href="nn.css" />');
// -->
</SCRIPT>


Then there's the IE7 bug ... "Click to activate and use this control" ... I'll post here now again with the solution to that little problem ...

One little trick to work around the "Click to Activate and Use This Control" problem
(due to a plugin issue with microsoft)

Your embed code is:


Code: [ Select ]
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/s wflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0"
id="mars" align="middle" height="130" width="130">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">
<param name="movie" value="mars.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">
<embed src="mars.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"
name="mars" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"
align="center" height="130" width="130">
</object>
  1. <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
  2. codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/s wflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0"
  3. id="mars" align="middle" height="130" width="130">
  4. <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">
  5. <param name="movie" value="mars.swf">
  6. <param name="quality" value="high">
  7. <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">
  8. <embed src="mars.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"
  9. name="mars" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"
  10. type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
  11. pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"
  12. align="center" height="130" width="130">
  13. </object>

If you ceate a myprintln.js file that simply says:
Code: [ Select ]
// myprintln.js
function myprintln(s) { document.writeln(s); }
  1. // myprintln.js
  2. function myprintln(s) { document.writeln(s); }

and put this in the head of your file:

Code: [ Select ]
...yada yada yada... 

 <script src="myprintln.js"></script>
 </head>
  1. ...yada yada yada... 
  2.  <script src="myprintln.js"></script>
  3.  </head>

...and wrap your script like this:

Code: [ Select ]
<script>
myprintln('<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"');                 
myprintln('codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/c abs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0"');
myprintln('id="mars" align="middle" height="130" width="130">');
myprintln('<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">');
myprintln('<param name="movie" value="mars.swf">');
myprintln('<param name="quality" value="high">');
myprintln('<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">');       
myprintln('<embed src="mars.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"');
myprintln('name="mars" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"');
myprintln('type="application/x-shockwave-flash"');
myprintln('pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"' );
myprintln('align="center" height="130" width="130">');
myprintln('</object>');
</script>
  1. <script>
  2. myprintln('<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"');                 
  3. myprintln('codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/c abs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0"');
  4. myprintln('id="mars" align="middle" height="130" width="130">');
  5. myprintln('<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">');
  6. myprintln('<param name="movie" value="mars.swf">');
  7. myprintln('<param name="quality" value="high">');
  8. myprintln('<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">');       
  9. myprintln('<embed src="mars.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"');
  10. myprintln('name="mars" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"');
  11. myprintln('type="application/x-shockwave-flash"');
  12. myprintln('pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"' );
  13. myprintln('align="center" height="130" width="130">');
  14. myprintln('</object>');
  15. </script>

...it will work around that problem
