Its going to have to be above or below the search box - you need a nice little icon for that Smile

To answer Dave's questions, Trebuchet is a Microsoft Web Font as they call it. Ie a font that they recommend designers use for the web, as it shows up very well. I don't think they distribute it alone anymore, but it comes with all versions of Windows AFAIK. So it would be a Windows-only font. Sad (shame because I love it).

Is a very nice font for graphics, not so much for main text though, especially at small sizes.

Yes, I tend to use it only at 12px and up. It's also very nice for titles, so, again, in big sizes Smile.

I have Trebuchet MS on Mac OS X and I'm pretty sure I didn't add it myself so I guess it came with the system.

Need some idea again :

Product Indexes, this looks too dull

Ignore the fact it has the wrong title and the wrong graphic, I'm just thinking the general design is ****, any ideas on how to make it look a bit better?

I'm not too sure about the white-on-blue title thingy...perhaps inverting the colours would make it look better.

Aargh! My backend just corrupted, now I've had to put the new site on early, I didn't have any of the frontpage done, I need a verdict on this :

http://www.freedom2support.net/

Bear in mind it's a 5 min quick job, don't worry about the broken links, I know about them, and I know about the search not working, I want opinions, comments and suggestions on how I can improve the design.

PS : If someone could make me a little forum icon to go in the top right of the page, I'll put you on the credits page Smile

What about a link to the home page? Wink

I'm also wondering why the links at the bottom of the page only appear there. Links at the bottom of a page should always be complimentary, and should not be a replacement. [Sorry if that's something which you're working on Smile]

Yes, that's OK now. You going to make the arrow change then? Wink Very Happy

One problem though: the "ADSL" cell above "Questions". It has a white background and only takes up 50% of the space.

The Arrow had to be removed full stop as it made it go on to two lines in 800x600, been updated again now Smile

As for the ADSL Cell, That's something I know about, it's a hangabout from the old version, it's an include from a FAQ Script:
