    Here is one suggestion. Look at it with images off or plug in the url HERE

    You have some errors in your code. Most of which are alt attributes for the images.

    Vakidation Results

    That helps some I hope.

    I'd change the way the links on the right hand side work and the text under it. The part that says "need more help.." doesn't need to be an image, just use text, it will help make the page load quicker. Then the 3 links directly under the logo, they could be text as well and when the mouse hovers over the cell, it could display that little arrow image. Then you could use 1 arrow image for all 3 and with that significantly cut down the number of images. Additionally it would put more text on the page and make it better for search engines to index the page. Also, the 2 images below theh "need more help..." thing doesn't need to be images either, just set the background color for the cell to whatever that color is.

    Additionally none of your images have an alternate text. You should add that in case the image doesn't load.

    How would I do the mouseovers without the images? I usually just make a photoshop image, slice it, and then import into dreamweaver, im more of a PS guy. Is there a code or something i can use?
