    Hi guys,
    just wondering if I could get a critique on my latest site. It's a company that sells vinyl wall decals from a former Disney artist.

    Nothing too fancy, just a table based design, but with a highly customised CubeCart shopping cart and I think it works quite well.

    Looks pretty good, but I'll point out one potential issue. When I first loaded the page in Camino, the menu looked totally goofed up (screenshot attached).

    Took me a minute to realize why, but it's apparently because I have my default font size set to 18pt (it's that high because I'm on a 17" MBP, so the higher resolution makes text hard to read if I use 12 or 14pt).

    I have Safari defaulting to 16pt, and it was fine there, and if I bump the font size down one notch with command-minus, it looks fine.

    I didn't look at your code closely, but the upshot is that if you're using regular text in a menu that's size sensitive, you should either set a specific pixel size for it or set up the menu so that it expands gracefully if the text is too long. Alternately, I THINK you could fix this by using a nonbreaking spaces, since it's Design Tips wrapping to two lines that causes the screwup, but that'll only work if the menu is set up to expand horizontally if necessary.

    Otherwise, seems quite nice.

    Neat idea. Site looks good. I would try and sell some on ebay, or if you're ambitious I'd try and get in to Lowe's or a paint store.

    Not sure how permanate these are, but you could also go with a theme design for Xmas, or Happy Birthday, great for kids rooms.

    Another idea is to make a "Games Pack" for kids.....like the grid ready for Tic Tac Toe, a Hangman game ready to be played, stuff like that.

    Good Luck!! I like the idea.
