Paul - good luck with it - I must tho make a comment regarding color of text on your links on first page (and others). Dark blue on black? NO!!!! Horrible and hard to read.

If you really must use a black background (not my fave - and I do web work so have a lot to compare with) ......... make your link color a light one ... and then the active and visited also - readable colors.

I'll wager if you use as background (if you really do want dark) perhaps a dark blue, it could look easier on the eye. Just to show what I mean ... go look here (http://www.plethorapix.com/bigbear/) - this is something I put up for a guy selling a bike - and have left it there. One of the few times I have used dark at all.

Not trying to slam the site - just trying to be constructive - if things are hard to read, navigate etc - hard fact is - folks just won't stick around!!

Paul - good combo's? Well - see the link I posted in last post - there I used a dark blue and IIRC cyan text .. plus yellow or cream is quite readable. This was as I think I said, one of the rare times I have actually chosen a dark background. Another reason was to help show off the bike pics too.

If you want I'll PM you some other links as examples - let me know ........ of course usually it is the client that dictates color scheme overall but - I do attempt to make sure that links are readable!!
