Hey soap, I’ve seen ya around the board, good suggestions for other people, so I thought I’d give ya some input on this one :)
Drop Down Menu, add text-align:center; to .menu_body – this will keep consistency with your buttons
Drop Down Menu hover, try using a background color change, rather than bold text on hover, just keep font weight normal
Drop Down Menu on mouseOut, it stays, is this what you want? Most I see / use will go back to hidden on mouseOut
Flash header, try jquery, you’ll get the same effect, even the text (graphic 4th image) easier to add more images later on
Buttons below Newsletter, try making each of these a different background color? I get that the site likes white, but this could be a good way to draw the eye.
Links that go to a different site should have target="_blank" so that your visitors don’t have to hit back to get to your site.
I don’t like seeing sites using Transitional Docktype, CSS-Tricks uses strict, which is good, but I like what google uses: <!doctype html> Its simple, cross browser, and I love it! Transitional will give you more headaches in the long run.
hmm what else…ah I know
Footer, the links with the border, axe that, make the links #666666 and the copyright #888888, put the copyright under the links, and vertically center the two, i did it through firebug, and it looks pretty darn good.
I’m not trying to be picky, but help overall, i love getting long posts on my sites, helps me in the long run :)
I just noticed that about Google’s doc type (<!doctype html>). I’ve never seen it before and I don’t even see it listed as an option to use on sites like w3schools. Is that kind of like a user defined doctype?
You’ve made a toolbox for the buttons… If you drive a long each button you don’t see exactly how the text change. Try a JQuery fade effect for mouseover/out. I’m not really sure about this, but try it ;)
