Is this your first attempt at creating a website? If so, then it's good
A couple of things I would recommend you remove are:
* The DHTML effect when you load up the page (the page folding out effect).
* The date at the bottom of the status bar is a bit weird.
Now, the main problem, is the navigation bar at the top. It relies heavily on Internet Explorer - it doesn't function properly on Mozilla (and other
web browsers I would guess).
Either, write some cross-platform code that works in both Mozilla and IE (those being the main browsers of choice these days).
Or, write a browser-detection script, which detects what browser the user is using. This way, if the user is using IE - your script will know, and can
dynamically write the code to produce the navigation bar you have now - if, on the other hand; the user is not using IE, your script could dynamically
write the code to produce a different type of navigation bar - which works on all other browsers (stick to plain HTML tables maybe?).
I would advice using the second suggestion... But the choice is upto you. In case you're thinking "I'll just stick with what it is now, and tell my
users to use IE" - this is not good. Users do not like to be told what they have to use - it's your job to accommodate everyones browsing platform -
this way you will recieve more hits, and what's important - people coming back
Hope my advice is of some good, lol - if not, tell me to shut up
