    I think the font size is too small generally, might be worth bumping it up a size

    Also, the contact page isn't working

    As the non-design guru around here, I like it. Text a bit small as said previously and a few other things.

    I think that it can be hard to know where you are because as I clicked some text links within the content, I found that after reading it, I couldnt remember which page I had been on and therefore where next to click on the menu.

    Possibly solved if you made the menu links highlight when in that page?

    Also, the splash page is a bit old hat? I think its OK but, tons around here seem to consider them sooo annoying.

    Finally, (And, pedantic I suppose); in your text you mention that
    To be able to visit VRML worlds you need a VRML browser. If you use Windows there are a number of browsers available, as with HTML the VRML worlds can look quite different with different browsers. Macintosh, Linux and Unix users have very few browsers to choose between.
    Once inside a VRML world you can explore and interact with the environment, objects can execute scripts that cause them or other objects to take some programmed action.
    I would suggest when you are finalising the text, you take account of the concept of the user wanting to use just one browser. I would suggest that you name the browers that are suitable for each o/s, with links to their sites if possible. It matters not, to me, that fewer browser variants are available for my o/s when I only need to use the one that is.

    Hopefully, you haven't found this to be stingingly critical; it's not meant to be.

    I am actually curious now that I have read your site and want to read more about it

    Thanks for your thorough review. Yeah the article on 3D technologies was a Uni assignment and I had a word limit which was very tough to keep so I couldnít go into to much detail and had to stick to the guidelines of what we were told to write about. I got 96% so didnít do too bad!

    Maybe now though once I have put up all my content I will consider adding more substance to the article.

    I think your right about not knowing where you are on my website due to the link not being highlighted I will try and correct this.

    Thanks

    IMO the whole design is too small. I'm viewing at 1280x1024 and the site is rather small in the center of my browser...
