I would get a pic that wont stretch for the header. And loose the fake striping photo on the main page. Wait, I am not punt???

I'm not punt either, but there are all kinds of problems with your site.

1) Stretched header image
2) Menu overflow
3) Multiple content positioning problems
4) Testimonial block should not be above the menu. Personally I would remove it altogether and put it on its own page once you get more than one.
5) Layout ..... mixed fixed width and dynamic .... why?
6) Does not validate (html) and your CSS file is seriously bloated
7) code is literally a nightmare.

Given items 6 & 7, you get the automated response (CSS does validate but IMO needs to be seriously reduced).


1) Code is not valid. Please validate!!

HTML: http://validator.w3.org/
CSS: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/

2) Mixture of hardcoded style, inline style, linked style is a NIGHTMARE.
Separation of style and content is the recommended way to maintain your code.

3) Limited or no document structure/outline

4) Limited or no accessibility compliance

Hi, I separated your post, and made it a new thread. That way Tomber's thread stays intact with comments and ideas for his website.

Thanks, 1MajorTom. I was reading through some of the things and thinking, "I don't have any testimonials on my site. What is he talking about?" This will make it easier.
