Looks really nice! Maybe having some rollovers on the topbar buttons would look better and I'm not sure i like the font that the button text is in (Ariel?)

You might also want to consider Alt tags for the button images so it tells you what each button does. (I don't really know what the top right 3 icons do, i can only guess) Their are disability laws in some countries that state that you should have things like ALT tags to help disabled users use your site more easily.

Excellent site though, keep up the good work!

Agreed with Dug, accessibility is slowly becoming made law around the world. Even if it's not in your country yet, it will be. Might as well get in the habit of building sites for all your audience.

Alt text is a big must, although to be honest I would use background images for:

Layout images
Links (overlay text onto bg img)
any image with text and use image replacement.

I think you win the prize for most markup validation errors, 373 in total :shock:

Your code is pretty bloated too. Take the stylesheets out of the header and put them in a separate file - thats the whole point of them.

Code: [ Select ]
<td class="orange" valign="center" align="middle" width="15%" bgcolor="#D1E6EF"><div align="center" class="style6 style9"><span class="style8"><FONT face="verdana, arial, helvetica">Small Cone</FONT></span></div></td>

That is a bit exxcesive just to write "Small Cone" on the screen.

The lists on the front page should be made with ul and li tags, use the list-style-image css property to get custom bullets, not an img tag.

It is a beautiful site, and I'm sure it will impress many sighted users with PCs, but the code leaves a lot to be desired, and anyone not using a conventional screen has no chance.

Nice layout, but a little too static I think.
