I've been playing with a design recently...I think it needs some work, but I can't think exactly what to do to it. I really like the background image, but I can't seem to find a font colour that is easy to read over it, so if anyone has suggestions for that specifically that'd be great Very Happy

None of the links work yet, so don't bother trying them Wink

Well this is probably an IE6 bug, but I can see the background image in front of the text, which means that even with a suitable font colour I wouldn't be able to see it Sad I have to actually select the text to be able to read it.

I hate IE...it always finds a way of screwing up my designs. I've fixed a couple of small CSS errors, by any chance is it better now?

fade the background to make it very light. will look nice behind dark text.

Yes, it is better Very Happy

Not sure why you insist on using that font on all your sites - I don't like it much to be honest Razz [OK, I see you've just set it to sans-serif. Try setting it to something which looks good - even if the fonts don't exist, sans-serif can be used as a fallback]

Totally agree, To be honest I can't see any font being readable at the moment.

Yes, I'm using mozilla, and the site looks ok, but fade the background image. It's too hard to read the main text otherwise.
