I'm looking for some feedback on my final directory listings layout. It can be viewed at: http://www.lgbtsource.com/buddhism.html.

I plan on adding background colors to the listing headings and info areas, but I'm still debating on what colors I want. I'm a bit obsessive with the exact shade and am busy going through colourlovers.com to get the exact shades I want.

Thanks for any feedback,
James

Hmm. Maybe some rounded corners on the header would liven it up? Personally, I think that dotted borders on those cells look better than dashed.

I added some background colors and changed the borders a bit. Thoughts?

It looks good, but you shouldn't emboss. It's a pretty dated design technique.

What do you mean by emboss?

It's the effect of making something looked like it's carved out of the page, much like a plaque. It's usually made by having two borders a light color, two a dark.

So, I shouldn't have any borders? Or possibly a background color for the block of information (the about, url, and date added)?

"shouldn't" is perhaps too strong a word. I'm talking about the bits with the text "Gay Men's Buddhist Sangha" centred in it. I was thinking maybe only a bottom border on those bits.

It would be good if you add some light background for condent area .
