First of all, congrats and thanks for taking the trouble to validate your HTML (and for the most part your CSS – looks like whatever CSS “errors” are reported aren’t really errors). Too bad more people can’t be bothered with this before asking for help.
I’ll leave detailed, technical feedback to others more qualified. But visually, I gotta say that I find the semi-opaque purplish overlay very unappealing, even disturbing enough to make me want to avoid the site.
Yeah I am just testing it on a server right now, so ignore the white space in the URL, it won’t be there when it is released!
Does anyone have any ideas for the content area? I am playing around with ideas (hence the About Us page being white). I am undecided as to what looks better. I am not sure if it is the purple background that makes it look unappealing or not.
