    Thanks Rach

    Oh yeh oops, I have just changed that now!!

    The logo is a bit different to how I want it to look but I am awaiting the file of my new logo so then I can put it on.

    I love iWeb on the Mac, to make a whole website & for it to cost like $200 is genius!! Took a bit of time tho.

    Looks great!

    But there's still some words being cut off at the bottom of the About Us page.

    Don't take any of this personally but you can tell what I sometimes do for a living...

    Ok I'm looking with IE8 (I should know better but firefox kills my pc)
    On the about us page - the photo sits on top of the text so you can't read it.
    About us

    I think you might also want to put a translation of "myofunctional therapist" too.
    "relief from" not "relief to" maybe?

    Aesthetics

    On the front / cover page

    I find I need nearly all of my 1024 pixels to see it.
    When I'm building web pages I try to limit the total page height of anything important to 800 pixels high - because there are still screens out there that don't show any higher, and those of us with more screen real estate don't like to have the whole screen taken over by one website - we have lots of screen so we can see lots of different things at once.

    So I'd shorten it up a little.

    I'd also put a couple of lines about what you do that would make me want to find out more. At the moment for me it's pretty and move along. As it is - I'd think you provide dogs for mental health therapy. It needs something along the lines of "massage for dogs" and why like "keep your dog running smoothly" (a bit like a car service). Instead of smoothly - maybe "in top condition". Is more vague and relative to what the dog can do just in case it has some sort of permanent lameness.

    Aesthetics on the gallery and other pages...

    I like when everything lines up. So I'd like the line under the menu links to set the page width, and then Gallery to line up or be inside the edge of that line in line with the first menu item and the same on the RHS. At the moment (in IE8) Gallery, Healthy4Paws and the line - none of them align with the right end of that line or each other. Same with all the stuff on the left.

    Given the photos are slightly different sizes - I'd align the middle ones with the middle of each other ie if you have a table of nine squares, make the center squares align image in the center. Align the others to the tops of their squares. And the edge ones align along the edge ie if they're on the left, align along the left, and the same with the ones on the right side, align on the right side...

    It would be nice if there was a little roll over text (alt tag) with the images that displayed a little story about each dog and how it benefits from its massage sessions.

    Let me make something up.
    Lahtay the weimerana is more relaxed in the show ring after a massage.

    On the contact us page -
    Contact

    Make sure each contact image has an alt tag with the details. I hope you are using a java script to disguise the email and even the phone number from spammer web crawlers. Google is your friend here or I can email you one and a sample page.

    The facebook thing took a long time to display.

    I'd put the phone number first and maybe repeat it with the country code - just in case. Email next, and face book last. People can use their phones to surf the web now, and it's easier if there are alt tags (so they don't need to download the images) and the important stuff is listed near the top left of the page.

    And I'd make everything line up pretty.

    Thank you so much for the info.

    I am working from a Mac & it is the first time I have used iWeb but I just checked what it looks like on a PC & it is a bit different so I am going to have to move some things around.
