    Thumbs up

    One word - BRILLIANT! I especially like the customised W3C buttons and I personally think that blue goes really well with most websites.

    Are the W3C buttons images?

    Very nice, much better than before - alot more professional. Although still doesn't actually strike me as a band site at first glance without reading...

    mw2005, of course their images...

    The page isn't valid due to 'type="text/javascript"' being missing from your script tags for popup.js - but I don't see where you are using the script anyway.

    I think it has a great look too it. Clean. I would, however, suggest messing around with the following:

    1) Mouseover on nav links is green. That doesn't seem to fit the theme. I would suggest black or the intoroduction of a new highlight color, like #eecc11 (a very rich yellow).
    2) The content divs need some padding (noted on the media page where text is touching the borders.
    3) Fonts need work IMO. The arial heading those divs just looks like it could be better (the band mamber names for example). I'd try Verdana the the other parts.
    4) Try using ems, percentages, or relative sizes for text. That way it can be enlarged with IE at will. Pixels aren't good to use for content. If you do that, make sure you either 1) apply the same measurement unit to any confined heights on the site, or apply {overflow:auto;} to said divs.
    5) Contact page seems poorly laid out. I didn't look at the code there to see why. I would suggest using a contact form. Much better as in it allows people to contact you even if they don't hava mail client. Lots of people check email online due to spam. Offering only a mailto: link disallows a certain segment of the population from contacting you then and there, and they may not come back to do it when they can. At that point you would have lost a visitor.

    Again, nice look. Clean. Needs a brush is all.

    I hope this helps.

    Note: At the moment I'm using IE6.2 on Windows XP at 1024x768, with a broadband.

    I'm working on most of that, I didn't get time yesterday because I had been up for about 30 hours.

    I like it a lot more than the last one, and as mark said, much more professional.

    Well done

    Yea.

    1. I believe that the hover's should be switched on the navigation so it goes from light to dark not dark to light.
    2. I don't really like how the top touches the top of the monitor, yet the bottom doesn't because of the validation and stuff. (Hope that makes sense). For that I think you could put the validation's and FF stuff above the copyright stuff in that big gap.

    I'll try it.
