    possibly you forgot, one thing i noticed is there is no end tag for your html </html>
    goes at the very bottom.
    could use a doctype declaration

    this link looks like it covers html4.01 dtd's
    it will specify what version html you are using, and the url to the document type definition.
    for example xhtml11 dtd can be refered like this:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">

    the dtd can also help you validate your documents with the w3c validator.

    Nice design

    The design is looking good, though i'm not a great fan of orangy colors, but that's strictly personal. Well laid out, decent contrast, very nice.
    Scrollbar coloring is already getting a bit old, though; at least try to stick to same shading as the original (like on this forum ) and not inverting it like you did; i keep clicking on the track where i meant the scroller.
    Oh, and it may not be possible due to space limitations, but i'm a great fan of fluid layouts...

    Concerning the code, i'd suggest to definitely get rid of font and b elements and such (use CSS instead), you might want to move your styles to an external style sheet for easier maintenance, and the code is a bit spacy. An empty line here and there for clarity is ok, but having one after about every line of code doesn't improve legibility and - although slightly - increases the document size (and download time) needlessly.
    Regards,
    Ronald.

    I didn't actually bother to check the script, but is that a forced delay on the side menu mouse over? It takes a second or 2 to change on my computer.

    nope... it might be good if the text inside the box changes at the same time as the backgroudn colour. looks good to me

    Thanks for the comments! I'll turn the scroll-bar inside out.

    You're right redhead, it's not a forced delay (left meny bar). The background color changes when you hover the cell and the text color changes when you hover the text (I think I did combine it in my CSS).

    3 more questions:
    - What exactly do you mean by external CSS?
    - just checking: does the vertical and horizontal menu bars really look red/reddish orange (because they should!)?
    - if you could change the reddish orange into another color, what would it be (because I'd definetely like to stick to the basic orange and the background colors)?

    Thanks again!

    Basically you save a style sheet as a .css file and attach it like this:

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="sheetname.css" />

    I also converted the graphic to a GIF as it takes ages to load. I attached it at the right size ( 295 * 99 )
