    Suggestions:
  • Set up alternate content for Flash banner (like jpg) for visitors without the latest player who either don't care to or can't install it. They get a huge white box dominating top of the page. And consider a detection script also for same visitors, otherwise they'll continually get tedious dialog boxes on every page with the banner asking them to download the player -- a good way to drive them away from using your site.
  • Table headings difficult to read on my monitor (1280 x 1024) -- try a different text color for them, like #fff, for example
  • Text, including navbar, is cramped and hard to read -- left align it (except navbar), add padding, and try a different font family or size
  • Fix bottom banner so it doesn't overlap your main text when window gets narrower than than ~700px.
  • Use less distracting background -- right now, esp. without the banner, the background's the most visually interesting page element. Sad

Moock's script is a good one, but it's not working -- still get the Flash download and no alternate content (white box).

What's your res script supposed to do? Text is larger, is that it?

Ya, the table headings are hard to read still, even on my 1152x864 res.
