    After making the changes some of you wonderful people suggested, I'm back with the new-and-improved EMEDCO site.

    Things I've done to it:

    Variable Height
    Optimized Photos
    JavaScript Slideshow
    PHP Includes
    New Header Design
    New Contact Design

    It's still lacking on content, but that will change once I get the necessary information. ^^

    Here's the link: http://www.emtcpr.com/grey_final_php

    So, what do you guys think? Do you have any more suggestions?

    Looks good, but from a design standpoint:

    I think the font is slightly too big. Try using font size 12 instead.

    Also I would move over the "Home" so that it is aligned with the paragraph below. Besides that, I think it looks good.

    What's so cool is that the font will change according to the user's font setting in the browser. ^^

    Okay, will do. ^^ Thanks for you suggestions! ^^

    Looks good. Although at least in Firefox 3.5.7 I get this in the top right corner (gray banner is a pixel too short):

    The Times New Roman body text looks accidental, like you just forgot to style it. I'd use another font.

    Yeah I agree, I really like how the site looks as a whole. Except the font just seems a little dated.

    The other thing, the contact section in the top right looks like some extra spaces exist on some lines as all the lines don't look like they are justified the same. I am not sure what it is exactly.

    I agree with the thoughts on the Times New Roman.

    Please change the font to a sans serif font. Serif fonts are hard to read on the screen and bad for people like me with dislexia.

    I switched the font to Verdana. It was supposed to be that way from the beginning, but I forgot to add that into the css. ^^;

    You should use headings for larger text instead of wrapping them divs, ideally the main logo should be an h1 with the rest of the headings starting at h2 etc.. Try disabling stylesheets to see if it makes sense like that.
