Well, the site seems good. A few comments and questions follow:
1. I like the template (css?) and the breadslice menus that you are using. Are they available through the drupal net?
2. A clear "webmaster" email address is missing in the menu. What if someone just wants to leave you a quick message, or to make an enquiry.
3. A page with links to other sites dedicated to the Web design and usability matters would be useful. You could add places like:
3.a)http://www.intranetjournal.com/articles/200103/intranet.html
3.b)http://www.webpagesthatsuck.com/

Thank you! Your comment will help me improve this site.

1. I like the template (css?) and the breadslice menus that you are using. Are they available through the drupal net?

The template (css) is not available on drupal. It's one I create specially for this site. I'm using drupal's PHPtemplate engine and I started on top of Marvin 2k theme. This design is highly based on CSS.

With the exception of the blue tab main navigation menu, all menus are available without installing any additional module to drupal. The blue tab main navigation is accomplished with a conditional php code, placed on the custom template. The php code checks the url and returns the appropriate code for each section.

The tab navigation menu idea was taken from Sliding Doors of CSS. I chose this technique because, it allows text size increase.

2. A clear "webmaster" email address is missing in the menu. What if someone just wants to leave you a quick message, or to make an enquiry.

Yes, a feedback form will be added to the site. Thank you for pointing this out.

3. A page with links to other sites dedicated to the Web design and usability matters would be useful. You could add places like:
3.a)http://www.intranetjournal.com/articles/200103/intranet.html
3.b)http://www.webpagesthatsuck.com/

This one is needed too. I will add links to certain pages like the ones you suggested.

Hi All,

I would just like to say Edgard is helping with a site I am trying to design. I feel I have learned more from talking to him than I have learned in a long while so I felt obliged to post this message.

Top man.

Best wishes
Graeme

I'm glad you have found useful my help. I like to help people, I started with a computer's tech support job. Your post encourages me to work harder on this site. Right now I'm working to make the forums more user friendly.

Thanks Graeme!
