    I think your navigation should be text not images. I was also expecting some type of color change on the navigation. I'm not a big fan of the overflow:auto div but I guess to preserve layout you had to do it but then again if designed differently you wouldn't have to. Your text looks a little blurry on my screen, not sure why though.

    Nice design! I only have one little nit, and that is the outline (only visible to Mozilla browsers) when a link is selected. It's easily sorted though:

    Code:
            a {
              outline: none;
            }

    Just be sure to have some other way to let the user know that the link is focused if you plan on removing the outline.

    True that. With IE the link turns red, which would be preferred for Firefox, too.

    Nice work Ollie!

    Looks fresh and 'off the cuff'.

    Nice to see someone breaking out of the usual 'header/sidebar/content/footer' routine too.

    Code:
    font: 260% 'Helvetica Neue', Century Gothic, sans-serif;
    ? guess most people will be getting sans-serif there

    The figures that make up the 'M' and the 'K' look like little stick figures? If that is the case, I have to ask - what's that - proudly sticking out from between the legs of the 'K' figure!? - not that I mind a bit of ribaldry

    Good stuff all-in-all - good to see you stretching yourself in terms of layout etc.

    Kind regards,

    Gary

    The navigation is text...? It should change colour on :hover, to the same pinky-red as the bg - what browser are you using? I'm usually against inline scrolling, but it just seemed the simplest way to achieve the look I was going for. Not sure about the blurry text. Ta for the comments

    Far too kind sir I hadn't thought about the font - I might end up using CSS image replacement or sIFR, as I really want to use Helvetica Neue Light. Heh. I can categorically say I had not noticed that!

    Shall I "rectify" the situation?

    I'll get me coat.

    Oh dear..

    Ollie, would we call it lightweight? It's not a great look when you type in 'memeandzeke' into google and whay! The results you get are thus:

    Meme & Zeke - CodingForums.com
    http://memeandzeke.com/ Lightweight site for a film production company, built in about half a day. Comments and suggestions welcome ...
    codingforums.com/showthread.php?p=565572 - 26k - Cached - Similar pages

    Phwoar, can't you pose something like: Meme & Zeke what a great site, jee, memeandzeke is great!

    Then you incorporate all meme & zeke type tags, so anyone can find it! do it ollie, do it!

    In Firefox there's no effect on the navigation. Nice design.

    James - go away, this is my geeky hidey-hole

    croatiankid - Cheers, sorted. I think it was 'cos of a dodgy semi-colon that Safari was fine with but Firefox wasn't.

    Works great now in Firefox. The red menu items are nice, and thanks for dumping the Mozilla active link outline.

    I like how it keeps the same template through all the pages, although I think you should change your links to images.

    Thanks,

    did you seriously come back two weeks later to correct a typo?

    THAT's dedication!

    PHP Tip: If you want to use short tags (<? or <?=$var) then make sure short_open_tag is set to "1". It really helps.

    Don't forget to save everyone time and mark your thread as Resolved :)
