    I would appreciate a critique on my new site

    Just completed my site...I haven't set a default page so not live yet.

    http://debbiebarton.ca/landing.html

    I seem to have an issue on my computer. The gradient background shows on IE but not on Firefox. I'd appreciate any suggestions here.

    The CSS code I've used on the style sheet is:

    body {
    color:#000000;
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 12px;

    padding: 0px;
    filterrogidXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient(endColorstr='#F FFFFF', startColorstr='#a6bf79', gradientType='0');
    }

    I look forward to some feedback...have a good day!
    Debbie

    I haven't looked at the page, but I'll tell you right off the bat, Microsoft specific visual filters (in this case the gradient background) will not work with Firefox.

    My copywriting isn't complete so I'm mainly looking for a critique re layout and links, etc.

    When I try to look at other websites requesting a critique I get this message:

    friday, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
    1.Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2.If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation

    Don't know why....Powweb is my webhost.

    I believe you are referring to the two threads below yours. Those posts have been moved to the 'trash bin', the trash forum is not 'publically' (or search engine) viewable, that is why you get the 'no permission' message.
