Well, I can't see any errors.......
Do you think that's air you're breathing?
>yes. well, um, whoops!
It is not possible to get to
without using a pointing device to drop down the submenu. That is, keyboard
navigation fails as, probably, does a screen readers navigation.
The page at
should contain links to the subpages.
If the font size is increased four clicks then the menu escapes out of its
green box. That box should not have a fixed height. It should have no height
so its content (e. g. two lines of menu) determines the height.
You specify alt="" for all your images. I assume this is simply to get rid
of the validation errors. That is not the intention of the alt atribute, it
is intended to be used when the image is, for whatever reason, not
available. And some captions under those images might be nice, to tell me
what and where they are. At the moment they put me in mind of stock photo
decoration, you know like the picture of some young woman sitting at a desk
with a pencil that decorates so many contact us pages.
Install lynx. This is a text only browser (no CSS, no images, no anything
except the text) that gives you an indication of what screan readers might
read, and what the search engines might see. Lynx will tell you that those
>> things in the menu end up being possibly read, as who knows what,
possibly by sounding out the characters hex value.
Why use XHTML and then serve it up to the browsers as text/html? XHTML is a
failed experiment. You should be using HTML 4.01 and be preparing for HTML
5, unless you have other *valid* reasons for XHTML.
Don't use a coloured green box for the menu bar background. Simply specify a
background colour. This avoids another trip back to the server just to get a
disabled (try it).
required for one edition of IIRC netscape 3) indicates you "obtained" this
from somewhere. Ah, I see, suckerfish :-)
Why fixed width? This could quite easily scale nicely between some min-width
and max-width values. At my preferred font size of about 1.5em the lines are
a little too short.
Your home page description meta data is a little long. Google is only
picking up the first sentence. So is the page title. Google truncates it and
adds ... to the end. Have a look at your google entry.
Other than the above, nice job :-)

In my case on Safari, only two clicks shoves the white Contact Us
down into the white back background below the green and light
excellent as always. thanks!
