Just to let you know the main page looks a bit odd in safari 3.2.1 (on OSX 10.5.6), the images in the middle area of the page are justified left while the rest is centered.

The same occurs on Opera 9.63, Safari3.2.1, and Firefox 3.05 on Windows (Vista). But the images are centered on Internet Explorer 7.0.6.

IE is notorious for being non-compliant with web standards. It is best to check on other (better, IMHO) browsers as well.

Aside form that, I like the clean, simple, direct look of the website, and the fact that you can easily navigate to any of the major pages from any page. Simpleviewer works quite well for your site, too (although I prefer to avoid anything using Flash, if possible -- just my hangup).

Good, solid work in the galleries too.

I agree entirely. I particularly like several of the shots in the Fine Art gallery, but I'd have appreciated a little bit of information about each one. Just a line or two, nothing too fancy.

It would be awfully nice if the left and right arrow keys could be used to navigate within a gallery: it's a hobby horse of mine.

Code:
<div id="launchpad" class="style2" style="width: 636px; height: 442px">

If you do either:  margin: 0px auto;  or  text-align: center;  in the style of that div it would probably fix things up.  It currently is relying on the align="center" on the table tag (which is deprecated and handled differently on different browsers), espcially considering the doctype on the page is xhtml ( which means technically it should ignore align="" elements I believe ).

Thanks, I rebuilt the page quickly and it seem to work now in Firerfox.
If any of you could run the page agian and report back that would be a great help.

Must be a Mac thing, as it works fine on Vista 64, IE7, Firefox 3 and Safari

I'll keep digging..thanks for your efforts.

It's working in OSX safari ok now.  Seems you might have found the right combo with:

Code:
.style3 {
    text-align: center;
}
