I've created a very basic and simple design and just want some general opinions, as well as constructive criticism and browser compatibility. So far I've tested it under Internet Explorer 5.2 (MacOS X), 5.5 (WinME) and 6.0 (WinXP) and it seems to look fine under all of those browsers.
hard to judge the layout from just a jpeg, so we won't cover that..
as far as the colors go, maybe you could change all the white text with some yellow/orange shade or even green..
also, you might want to consider "sculpting" that blue header/nav bar from some type of montage so that it's not just plain blue... see what I mean?
