    dave is totally right, please use proper dummy text.

    a few things
    you should give your wrapper a width.

    dont use position:fixed;
    dont use z-index unless you really need to( and for your site you dont!)
    dont position using top right etc, just let it flow...

    I'm going to have a bit of a look through your css now. get back to you soon.

    I'm still working on this and would like some more feedback and help.
    http://www.violae.net/_/2/

    My major issue at the moment is that I can't get the content layer to sit nicely under the menus and headers at the top of the page. When I zoom in and out, that part of the page becomes hidden under the top part.

    Also, I'm having trouble figuring out how to use backgrounds in the CSS files. When I use "style="background-image:url(_img/bghead.jpg)" in the HTML file with in the div tag, it works, but when I use "background-image:url(_img/bghead.jpg);" in the CSS file, it doesn't. I'm following the references found here - http://webdesign.about.com/od/beginningcss/p/aacss7bg.htm

    I still haven't done anything with the content area of the page so there's no need to bother telling me about text.

    And finally, I am still willing to pay for somebody's time to help me get this done much quicker!

    Thanks!

    Well I guess I seemed to have fixed those problems by myself, the content is no longer hiding under the top parts.

    I will fiddle with the content layout a bit more, but I feel confident about that so I will leave that for some spare time and I'd like to now focus on a menu system, which is something I have no idea where to begin with. I like the idea of the hovering menu at the top, it makes a lot of sense to me even though it might not look as nice. Ideally I'd like a drop-down menu with (optional) side submenus, MS-Windows style, because the site has those 3 layers -> area>project>details.

    If anyone has some easy tutorials that would achieve what I'm after, I'd appreciate the URLs.

    One more question I have for now is about compatibility. I always check how it zooms and make sure I'm not screwing up the basic text view, every step I take, but I wonder if there are some other things I should be checking to make sure compatibility doesn't get harmed. Some online tools maybe?

    Thanks!
